Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the second edition:

"This book is designed to serve as a text for an introductory course in acoustics for physics or engineering students. … On the basis of its clear and concise exposition of a mix of basic and applied subject matter, I would recommend this book for consideration as a text in an introductory acoustics course. … I again wish to acknowledge the overall excellence of Principles of Vibration and Sound as a solid text for introductory acoustics." (Arnold Tubis, Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Vol. 116 (5), 2004)
