This book is in the Made Easy Series and is therefore arranged by a well-used formula and is spiral-bound to lie flat. The primary chapter headings are: Endoscopy Equipment, Use and Maintenance; Endoscopy of the Nasal Passages; Endoscopy of the Paranasal Sinuses; Endoscopy of the Guttural Pouch; Endoscopy of the Nasopharynx; Endoscopy of the Larynx; Endoscopy of the Trachea and Bronchi; Endoscopy of the Esophagus; Endoscopy of the Stomach; Endoscopy of the Duodenum; Endoscopy of the Urethra, Bladder and Ureters; Endoscopy of the Reproductive System of the Stallion; Endoscopy of the Reproductive System of the Mare; and Arthroscopy.

Each section begins with a brief overview of the anatomy of the area. The endoscopic technique is included in most sections. Some topics do not include a section on technique.

The color photos are excellent and include arrows to guide the reader. Details include Miscellaneous Conditions and Normal Findings. Some drawings are included to further illustrate structure and anatomy.

The chapter on Arthroscopy is short but educational. Beginning with Instrumentation, it goes on to Pre- and Post-Surgical Considerations, Common Pathology, Specific Joints, Pastern, Palmar/Plantar, Fetlock, and the approaches for treatment. Radiographs, drawings, and endoscopic photos all serve to orient the reader. Also included are the Carpal Joint, Elbow Joint, Shoulder Joint, Stifle Joint, Femoro-Tibial, and the Hip Joint.

This book would be valuable in the field as it is easy to lie flat for hands-free reading. There is a full index for easy reference and a Table of Contents showing sections and sub-headings.
