Many who come to work in audiology have little previous training in acoustics, or in the physical sciences generally. They find these subjects difficult, but when they seek help from books on audiology, they are likely to find only superficial accounts whereas books on acoustics mostly assume a physics-based readership and are consequently too difficult for the general reader.
Acoustics for Audiologists fills the gap. It can be read at several levels. At the most basic, it provides a full explanation of many of the general principles and special terms in acoustics that are relevant to clinical audiology and audiological science. The main text is supported by an introductory chapter covering the underlying physics, an appendix on the required mathematics, and worked examples and questions. At a more advanced level, the book answers the needs of students of audiological science and audiological medicine for whom previous studies have not included the physical sciences.
* Written for audiologists, trainee audiological scientists, and students of audiological medicine
* Supporting text includes a quick review of the relevant physics and mathematics
* Special exercises in working with decibels
* Worked examples to assist self-study and as a source for taught courses
* More than 170 figures

Many who come to work in audiology have little previous training in acoustics, or in the physical sc....Review:
"The author is a leading British audiological physicist with many years experience in this field. He is therefore well qualified to have undertaken this work... A substantial number of clear technical drawings, mostly original, ensure that the book is well illustrated... Although the author states that he wrote the book primarily for audiologists it is clearly of value to many others."
JOURNAL OF AUDIOLOGICAL MEDICINE
"This is an excellent resource. The text provides a detailed explanation of the physics of sound and then provides applications in clinical audiology. This text should be useful to the study of hearing science prerequisite to graduate study of clinical audiology...4 Stars!"
"This is a heroic attempt to bring together in one text all the things that clinical audiologists should know about acousticsbut probably don't... Concepts are explained clearly and the detail provided can be taken at a variety of levels...We would recommend this book as a reference for Audiology departments, calibration services, and as a teaching text suitable for BSc and MSc level Audiology."
"Peter Haughton has produced an excellent book that stands out from the competition. It deserves to be an essential reference work for all undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in audiology. It may become essential reading for modules on acoustics and calibration and students would benefit from having their own copy..."
