Reviewer: Alan G. Micco, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This multiauthored textbook imparts essential audiology information for otolaryngology residents by posing key questions and providing the answers.
Purpose: There is a strong push to assure that otolaryngology residents are properly trained in the area of audiology. This is a valid objective and the authors do a great job of accomplishing this goal.
Audience: Otolaryngology residents are the intended audience, although this book would also be helpful to practicing otolaryngologists, audiologists, and audiology and speech-language pathology students.
Features: The book is divided into four sections covering psychoacoustics, audiometric testing, vestibular testing, and amplification. The question-and-answer format provides concise yet detailed answers to emphasize important information and makes it very easy to navigate. The glossary and figures are excellent.
Assessment: This is an extremely useful book. Audiology education has become an essential part of training for otolaryngology residents. This handbook is easy to use and carry as a quick and convenient reference. There are few books in this area, and an updated resource was needed.
