In this section of our website, as well as on pages related to specific topics, GEO intends to present suggestions for books, articles, films and other sources of information that might be of interest to people who share our commitment to ear disease. These are not GEO publications, nor does their appearance on this list imply that we endorse or agree with everything they say. What it does mean is that at least some of us found them informative, thought-provoking and, we hope, action-inspiring on matters of vital importance to the patients and communities where we work. This list is very much a work in progress that will grow over time to include more topics and titles.
