4.0 out of 5 stars The only book written specially for the DO-HNS, 4 Sept. 2005
There are some good and bad points about this book. The bad points are while the presentation is quite readable, there is a distinct lack of facts and proper explanations in the revision notes section. For me, you can't really remember something unless you understand it and for this you really need the Key Topics of Otolaryngology to suppliment it. The great part about this book is the questions bit - no other book in the market has ENT MCQs and EMQs as well as sample OSCEs for the DO-HNS. To be fair, the explanations for the answers were brilliant. So if you are going for the DO-HNS, this is a must have!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for DO-HNS, 4 Sept. 2005
The contents of the book is excellent and the explanations very good. Arranged in topic form which makes it excellent preparation for the DO-HNS or anyone wanting to pursue a career in ENT. My only criticism is the utterly uninspiring presentation...just small words and no illustrations or pictures. It would have been 5 star otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insight into the heart of all Dutch fans, 30 Jun. 2005
For years my friends have wondered why I was so obsessed about the Dutch and their football (I'm a Malaysian living in England!). I struggled to make them understand but this book explains why so brilliantly. The Dutch play football so breathtakingly (when things are going well) but have so little success to show for it. Strangely, it is this frustrating underachievement that makes them so fascinating. In many ways, their well-documented self-destruction is very much a reflection of their culture (not just the footballing one). There are sections in the book where Dutch football legends would say "if only the Dutch had this , if only they had that...on top of their skill...they would be perfect footballers". But that would take away their Dutchness...
One thing's for sure though...the day they finally win the World Cup, it won't be just the Dutch fans who would be cheering....it would mark the fulfilment of one of the greatest footballing phenomenons.
