Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'An excellent basic reference on the scope of the fields of hearing and balance. There are few comparable books, and this one certainly covers the entire subject very well.' - Doody's Review of Books

'The book will form a priceless asset to any sizeable audiology department.' - Journal of Laryngology and Otology

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kenneth W. Altman, MD, PhD (Northwestern University)
Description: This is an excellent basic reference on the scope of the fields of hearing and balance. It is practice oriented but also has sufficient coverage of basic science principles that cover the foundations of the field. It has an excellent range of figures, tables, and illustrations.
Purpose: The purpose is to cover the scope of the fields of hearing and balance in one book. These are worthy objectives and the book certainly meets them.
Audience: The audience is not only audiologists and vertigo rehabilitation experts, but also otolaryngologists and even basic science researchers who can use it as a clinically-relevant reference. The authors are credible authorities.
Features: The book covers the scope of the field, including fundamentals, audiology, auditory disorders, vestibular science, vestibular disorders and their management. The book is an excellent summary that goes into sufficient depth to leave the reader with a strong foundation in each of the subject areas. Unique features include excellent figures, summary tables and charts. A CD-ROM would be a nice addition, but is not included.
Assessment: There are few comparable books, and this one certainly covers the entire subject very well. It is an excellent one-volume reference and textbook that should appeal to a wide variety of readers, clinicians, and researchers.
