Laryngectomy is not a Tragedy - Second edition

This book has provided help and encouragement to many Laryngectomy patients and their families since it was first published in 1984. The new edition published in 2013 will enable even more patients and their families to benefit. It has been updated by Sydney's granddaughter Dr Nicola Oswald with details about speech methods, lifestyle advice and information about future developments.

It is full of practical advice and information, as well as reassurance. Sydney Norgate who wrote the first edition had his larynx removed and, therefore, wrote from personal experience of the problems caused by loss of normal speech. His style is straightforward and humorous and the book has cartoon illustrations to help the patient along the journey to recovery.

The new material brings the contents up to date and continues Sydney's aim of providing both advice and inspiration to all those who are to have a Laryngectomy.
