Review of our book by Dr. Sachin S Gandhi of Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital, Pune, INDIA

All of us who are into ENT practice for long time now know the vast variations with which a patient with ear disease can present and this book fulfills a much needed demand of an atlas in this subject.
Authors Mubarak Khan and Sapna Parab have taken painstaking effort to collect photographs of most of Ear problems. The clarity of the pictures and lucid description along with will definitely be immense help to young ENT surgeons.
This atlas will help the undergraduates to understand and create an interest in this subject. Some pictures really suggest the extreme minute details that the authors have went into in depiction majority of diseases. The presentation of the book is also in an excellent format.
An additional commendable point for the author is that lengthy theoretical discussion has been avoided to keep the interest of the reader for the atlas.
I again congratulate both the authors for the efforts taken for the book and wish them a great success.

Review of our book by prof John S. Oghalai of Stanford University

I really enjoyed meeting you and your colleagues at the recent meeting.  I was so impressed with the quality of the presented work.  As well, I found your book to be excellent.  It is quite comprehensive of otologic pathology and the text describing each image was helpful.  Obviously, some images are better than others and I am sure that as you continue to accrue images, you can replace some of the more blurry images with better ones.  One additional suggestion, which may be impossible to achieve, would be to have CT/MRI images and audiometry results from the same patient next to the picture.  The student could then learn what radiographic imaging findings and hearing loss findings correlate with the micro-otoscopic evaluation.

I certainly enjoyed reviewing this textbook.  Thank you for sharing it with me.
