This is the standard text for those interested in psychoacoustics. In addition to being authoritative, it is an excellent read. One of the few technical books I've actually read cover-to-cover more than once, and an invaluable reference.

This book is one of my absolute favorites among the hearing research books. It covers all the basic themes and often gives very recent citations. So it is interesting to read that in some tinnitus patients ears the frequency is emitted from the ear! But together with this is the problem of the book associated: it is a little bit short. But all in all it is great to read and a wonderful inspiring book. Highly recommended also for beginners.

This book is comprehensive and well-written. Difficult concepts are explained clearly. The word "Introduction" in the title is deceiving, as the book is very thorough.

This is a really good book to give you an overview of hearing and different tests that are used in the field of audiology.

By psychophysical on January 26, 2011
Format: Paperback
I bought this book for an introductory class in audiology. Thus far, I am fairly unsatisfied with its condensed treatment of sine waves, the anatomy of the ear, and explanation of dB. As an introductory student, not only was I confused by the first chapter, but I was also astounded that an author would attempt to describe anatomy verbally without relevant figures. Past the first chapter, thing calm down a bit, but the amount of information crammed into the first 50 pages is a bit much. I'd rather have paid extra money for a longer book with a better explanation. However, if the basics of anatomy and acoustics aren't new to you, I suggest this as a good starting point.
