"Rhinitis: Mechanisms and Management is a text that appears to accomplish several tasks. Foremost, it stands as a valuable multidisciplinary reference for rhinologic disease, providing comprehensive, easily accessible information to the practitioner. The numerous references allow its readers to explore specific subjects in great detail when necessary. The flow of the text, however, makes for easy consumption of divergent materials, rending this text useful for physicians in training.�Rhinitis: Mechanisms and Management makes a valuable contribution to the present rhinologic literature."
