The " Atlas More Details of fiberoptic bronchoscopy" is authored by Prof. Rajendra Prasad, a reputed Chest Physician, Academician and has a wide experience of fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FOB), as is reflected in the book. The book is having information on various aspects of bronchoscopy starting from the anatomical aspect to advances in FOB, like laser, electro-cautery, cryotherapy, argon plasma coagulation, brachytherapy, endobronchial stenting, endobronchial ultrasound, etc.

The book has 17 chapters on topics relevant to FOB. These also include chapters on specimen collection techniques, pediatric FOB and interesting cases of personal experience. As an aid to bronchoscopy, the book provide comprehensive information with colored illustrations on how to proceed in difficult clinical situations and the methodology of procedures.

Certain topics like advances in FOB needs more elaboration with photographs. Complications of FOB are mentioned, but details about their prevention and management will be better. FOB in intensive care unit is another aspect, which needs attention for future editions.

This is the first edition of the book and has addressed this issue in a clinically oriented manner. The book is, therefore, highly recommended for medical graduates, post graduates and chest physicians, who are inclined to learn and practice FOB.

In short, this is an excellent and useful attempt in this direction, and I am sure future editions will have a much improved and elaborate descriptions, parallel to any international book on fiberoptic bronchoscopy.
