"This case-based surgical atlas for neurotology and lateral skull base surgery employs not only illustrations, but also intraoperative photos showing the steps. ... The audience includes otolaryngology residents, neurotologists, and neurotology fellows, as well as neurosurgeons who collaborate with neurotologists in a team-based approach to manage patients with these tumors. ... This is a great addition. The unique perspectives of the actual cases make the book different and a worthy contribution to the otolaryngology literature." (Alan G. Micco, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2016)
