Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Ryan McCreery, M.S.(Boys Town National Research Hospital)
Description: This audiology diagnosis book is part of a three volume set that includes books on treatment and practice management. This comprehensive survey of audiology has undergone substantial revisions and additions since the first edition was published in 2000. The entire range of diagnostic aspects of audiology is covered in varying depth, from clinical masking to auditory evoked potentials to vestibular assessment.
Purpose: The editors' stated objective is to provide a comprehensive resource to allow audiologists to be more effective in their clinical practice. Given recent advances in the clinical practice of audiology, a comprehensive book providing an introduction to these concepts is an important endeavor. For the most part, the editors' goal of creating such a resource is met by including chapters from experts in each of the areas.
Audience: The target audience for this book is clinical audiologists and audiology students. It would also be an adequate reference for clinical researchers. The authors who have written the chapters are recognized as experts on their respective topics.
Features: The book covers an extensive number of relevant topics from basic anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems through advanced clinical procedures for diagnosing hearing and balance problems. Chapters on the genetics of hearing loss and pharmacology are two unique areas that are critical for audiologists to understand, but are often left out of audiology texts. One disappointing limitation is the brief and outdated discussion of high-frequency tympanometry in infants.
Assessment: This comprehensive resource covers the entire range of topics from foundation concepts to advanced diagnostic procedures for audiologists. The second edition contains significant additions that add to the book's utility for clinicians and students in audiology.
