520    "Everything you ever wanted to know about ears from two 
       outstanding physician scientists. I loved this book!" -- 
       Donna Shalala, Former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human 
       Services In The Ear Book , Drs. Thomas J. Balkany and 
       Kevin D. Brown, recognized experts on ears and hearing, 
       explain how the anatomy of the ear facilitates hearing and
       balance and then examine the causes, symptoms, and 
       treatment of common problems of the outer, middle, and 
       inner ear. Their explanations take the mystery out of 
       hearing aids, the proper care of ears, and how the 
       pressurized conditions of scuba diving and air travel 
       affect the ears. And they debunk ear-related myths -- from
       the notion that exposure to loud noise strengthens the ear
       to the idea that tinnitus can be cured with nutrients -- 
       and urge readers to stop using ear candling or Q-tips to 
       get rid of wax. Drs. Balkany and Brown address such common
       questions as: Can dizziness be cured? How loud is too 
       loud? Why do my ears ring? Do cochlear implants work for 
       nerve deafness? What promise do innovations in gene 
       therapy and stem cell therapy hold for the future? Fully 
       illustrated and including helpful tables, hearing 
       preservation tips, a glossary of terms, lists of ear 
       medications and resources, and suggestions for further 
       reading, The Ear Book is sure to be a welcome family 
       guide. "This book is gem for everyone with questions about
       their ears. I highly recommend it -- especially the 
       chapter on Myths of the Ear!" -- D. Bradley Welling, MD, 
       PhD, Harvard University Department of Otolaryngology"--
