    Review:

    "...The chapters are well balanced...the material is timely and accurate. Gelfand's exposition of concepts is clear." -- Noise Control Engineering Journal

    "...a very good introductory text....." -- Australian Journal of Otolaryngology

    "...recommended for all serious courses concerned with this field." -- Clinical Otolaryngology

    "...well organized and covers each topic extensively....a welcome addition to any otologist's library." -- Otology and Neurotology

    From Book News:

    A textbook for an introductory graduate-level course in hearing sciences for students not assumed to have a background in either medicine or acoustics. Proceeds from anatomy and physiology to psychoacoustics and speech perception. The second edition is updated and revised, but does not aspire to cutting-edge treatment. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
