Otology is an intriguing subdiscipline of otolaryngology –head and neck surgery, which during our formative years appears glamorous but later only the hardened few, i.e. those who have mastered the anatomy of the ear on either side of the tympanic membrane survive, to practice otology. The authors have painstakingly produced a comprehensive atlas with lucid and relevant text which addresses normal and diseased state of tympanic membrane, ear canal and middle ear. The masterpiece pivoted on the concept of "the mind recollects and applies", which it has seen, has introduced, "tele-otoscopy", vis a vis with far better illumination and excellent clarity contrary to the traditional outpatient Bull's lamp or otoscopic examination and the time consuming cumbersome examination under microscope. The book shall be boon for the medschool novice and those already inducted in the fold of otolaryngology as even minute details like findings of both ears individually, which are sometimes are confusing are taken care of. It is an update for the specialist treating otological pathologies as it is a "photogallery" of clinical findings accumulated over a period of time. A sequele of the book covering middle ear pathologies in detail would be eagerly awaited. The book is a reflection of the current knowledge of otology and perplexing queries, it is hoped that it stimulates the reader to seek an answer to their queries to provide better patient care.
