Audiology: Science to Practice, Second Edition is a textbook for undergraduate students in audiology and speech-language pathology and for graduate students beginning an AuD program who may not have a previous background in the subject. It is also an excellent resource for any professional who works with audiologists or patients with hearing loss. Readers at all levels will find the material challenging yet understandable.. Extremely well-written, the book flows smoothly and logically. Difficult concepts are well supported by figures and tables for ease of learning. Each chapter is prefaced by a list of learner outcomes and punctuated by summaries (synopses) which can be found on the easily identifiable grey pages. The synopses include bulleted highlights for review or for a "quick read" of the entire book. At the end of each chapter there is a supplemental topic that can be used for expanded applications. Also included are references to the most current guidelines from the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Audiograms and calibration values are based on the newest standards set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI, 2004).. The author, who has taught an "Introduction to Audiology" course for more than 20 years, has truly designed this text with the student in mind. Based on his experience, he has produced a balanced coverage of the subject that is consistent with the material necessary for an introductory course. Chapters cover hearing science, diagnostic procedures, an introduction to hearing aids, and extensive coverage of anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems. This book will give the reader the tools needed to have an understanding and appreciation of the auditory system, to be able to interpret and understand basic hearing tests, and to be able to apply this knowledge to their future education or clinical practices. It is design

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Linda Jacobs-Condit, AuD, CCC-A(George Washington University)
Description: This book provides the foundations for understanding the auditory system, covering the careers of audiologists, fundamentals of hearing science (including anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems, and sound acoustics), clinical audiological measures from pure-tone testing to speech audiologic measures to physiologic measures, disorders of the auditory system, and remediation. Special contributions include a chapter on historical highlights in audiology by James Jerger and an introduction to hearing aids and cochlear implants by Gus Mueller and Earl Johnson.
Purpose: According to the author, this book is intended to provide anyone interested in the field of audiology (undergrads, doctoral students, healthcare professionals) the foundations for understanding the auditory system and performing and interpreting hearing tests as they relate to auditory disorders, as well as to provide an appreciation for the profession of audiology.
Audience: On the one hand, the book is specifically intended for readers with little or no background in audiology. On the other hand, it provides a comprehensive coverage of hearing science and clinical audiology. The book meets its objectives, flowing well from chapter-to-chapter and presenting foundational information that is a good framework for learning about audiology. Dr. Kramer is professor in the School of Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences at San Diego State University, where he also serves as co-director of the AuD program jointly offered by San Diego State University and University of California San Diego. He also continues to provide clinical services in addition to his teaching responsibilities.
Features: The book provides the fundamentals of hearing science, clinical audiological measures, and perspectives on the profession. Each chapter begins with a list of learner outcomes and includes highlighted synopses, supplemental topics for additional learning, and references to the most current guidelines from both ASHA and AAA. Audiogram and calibration values are also based on the latest ANSI 2004 standards.
Assessment: This would serve as an excellent resource for an introduction to audiology course, and a workbook is also available. It would certainly be a good competitor to the standard Introduction to Audiology, 10th edition, by Martin and Clark (Allyn & Bacon, 2009).
