Dr. Joe Niamtu, III wrote a textbook in 2010 that became one of the best selling cosmetic facial surgery textbooks on the market.  This book was translated into several languages and purchased by doctors from all specialties that perform cosmetic facial surgery.  Due to the popularity of the first edition, Dr. Niamtu was asked by the plastic surgery division of Elsevier (the world’s largest medical publisher) to write a second edition.  This new edition is not a “warmed over” of the first book, but rather an effort to rewrite the text.  Dr. Niamtu has added thousands of new pictures and updated new diagrams.  Each chapter has been rewritten to include advances from the first edition.  In addition, Dr. Niamtu has invited internationally recognized specialists from plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, oculoplastic surgery and dermatology to contribute chapters and commentary for this new text.

My new text book (2nd edition 0f) Cosmetic Facial Surgery was published in January of this year by the plastic surgery division of Elsevier, the world’s largest textbook publisher.  In the medical publishing world there is a company called Doody Enterprises that provides reviews of new books.  I quote from the Doody webiste:  “Since 1993, Doody Enterprises has been the most trusted source of timely, expert reviews of newly published books, print and electronic, in the health sciences. We specialize in timely, targeted information update services for health sciences librarians and busy healthcare professionals that combine customized weekly literature update emails with content-rich websites.  To provide these unique information services, Doody Enterprises has forged successful relationships with more than 250 book publishers in the health sciences and established a network of more than 7,500 academic health sciences professionals as expert reviewers”.

Although not all new books get to be reviewed by the company, those that are lucky enough to be selected for review hope for a positive review.  This is much the same process as “5 Star” restaurants.  I was both humbled and honored to receive a 96/100 points for a nearly perfect score.  I poured my heart and soul into writing this book and it was a great feeling to see the positive review.  This is an exciting day for me and the other contributors to the text.

Thanks from some readers
