Library Journal Review

Because of the close relationship of sinusitis to asthma and allergies, this comprehensive guide by a qualified ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist is a good addition. Although highly technical, the book is well laid out in a question-and-answer format. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
