Review quote

"Gives comprehensive coverage from peripheral biophysics to sensation. It is scholarly, with an unashamed tutorial emphasis that should please its intended readership of maturing undergraduates and aspiring neuroscientists." --Nature

"The fundamental aspects of physical acoustics, auditory physiology, the central auditory nervous system, psychoacoustics, and relevant pathologic conditions are examined in this comprehensive introductory text. Historical perspectives. . . . make this volume especially well-suited for teaching purposes. Especially noteworthy is the creative and artistic use of illustrations to emphasize parallels between the psychology and physiology of sound perception. " --Ear and Hearing

"Hearing is a comprehensive text reviewing many topics in hearing science with an emphasis on technical detail. It would be a useful text for the graduate student or as a reference for the hearing professional." --Hearing Rehabilitation Quarterly
