It would take a library of a dozen titles to duplicate what s in this one book. Architectural Acoustics is for the intelligent, college-level beginner, with a desire to learn basic concepts, as well as practical computation and design methods. There is nothing else in print that covers as broad an area of acoustics, and covers it in as much depth. --Ted Uzzle, Sound & Communications
Architectural Acoustics is another important work on our shelf, and is a must for all libraries. --Glen Ballou, S&VC
