Review:

Linda Jacobs-Condit, AuD, CCC-A (George Washington University), Doody's Review Service, (2009): "Up to date and useful as a reference for students as well as practicing clinicians in audiology, otology, physical therapy, neurology." John E. King (Medical University of South Carolina), Ear & Hearing, (2008): "Despite the number of contributors, the text flows seamlessly as uniformity has been maintained in presentation style and language. ... A must-have for those who truly want to explore and understand the clinical realm of the vestibular system. ... This text offers something for everyone from the novice to the expert nearing retirement." A. Banerjee (Middlesbrough, UK), The Journal of Laryngology & Otology, (2009): "The DVD that accompanies each chapter is excellent and explains the practical points covered...All in all, this is an excellent book, to be used as a reference for ENT surgeons, trainees, and audiological physicians."
