Audiology and Auditory Dysfunction is a comprehensive, current, and accurate survey of both audiometry and hearing disorders. It is appropriate for beginning and intermediate students alike, and will be an essential reference for all inservice professionals. All readers will find the book to be organized in a logical and concise fashion. Beginning with a discussion of sound, what we hear, and how to measure hearing loss, the book continues with a systematic exploration of the pathologies likely to be found at the pinna, in the ear canal, the middle ear, the cochlea, the brainstem, and the cortical levels. Each chapter concludes with a Comment designed to highlight the most important aspect of the material just reviewed. In addition to being an excellent survey text, the broad scope of Audiology and Auditory Dysfunction and its systematic approach to auditory pathology make it an excellent reference book for clinicians working in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. Since a clinician is unlikely to encounter all the disorders reviewed in the book within a single year, the book represents a lifetime of clinical exposure. The working clinician needs to have a fundamental background and a ready reference to use when new and unusual cases appear. The text offers that combination.
