"This is an excellent text for an introductory course in hearing science. It is concise and... easy to read even as a presentation of complex material. The illustrations, use of supplements, and concise explanations of a wide range of material in a single book make this particularly useful as a text. In the latest edition a section has been added on the abnormal auditory system. In addition, a CD-ROM and workbook are available. These features make the fourth edition a worthwhile improvement." - DOODY'SAbout the Author:
