    M. Sanna(Author)
The anatomy of the temporal bone is one of the most complicated areas in the human body. The vital structures, the three-dimensional relationships involved, and the fact that these structures are hidden within bony canals make the anatomy difficult to grasp. Described as a dream come true by the authors, Professor Sanna and his colleagues have devoted a major effort to creating this book to serve as a guide for young trainees wanting to learn more about temporal bone dissection. It provides comprehensive, high-quality, full-color pictures of the detailed steps of all the major surgical approaches that can be performed in the temporal bone, supplemented by images of cadaveric dissections as an aid to understanding the intracranial anatomy when indicated by the approach. Dr. Sanna is part of The Grupppo Otologico, a world-renowned specialist center for the diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of diseases of the ear, skull base, facial nerve, head and neck, and paranasal sinuses. More information is available on the group's website,

A welcome addition to the teaching arsenal for Neurotology. ...rife with color photographs...[a] valuable resource for use as an accompanying text for study before and after drilling. The descriptive text and the photographs each stand separately with their own inherent narrative arc. This format is highly effective, allowing the reader to first conceptualize the approach and then maintain focused attention on the anatomical structures uncovered with each step. The images...are painstakingly labeled and capture the flow of each procedure at appropriate intervals. With its emphasis on more advanced approaches, The Temporal Bone is perhaps most valuable for the advanced resident and neurotology fellow. It certainly belongs on the shelf of the neurotologist who is involved in teaching temporal bone anatomy and in the libraries of Otolaryngology training programs.--LaryngoscopeOutstanding photographs that make the anatomy outstanding book...can easily serve as a dissection manual in the laboratory. This would be a good addition to the library of any otolaryngologist.--Doody's Book ReviewsA nicely illustrated book... For each approach there is a clear step-by-step description of the surgery. Each step is illustrated with temporal bone photographs and drawings. In summary, it is an abundantly illustrated easy-to-use didactic book... It is to be recommended for starting ear surgeons and for more in-depth study.--B-ENT
