While ostensibly written for the lay reader, this volume will appeal more particularly to the psychologist, the teacher and student of music, and specialists in diseases of the ear. It is written without regard to lay readers' knowledge of physics and physiology, and is therefore beyond the average comprehension. It is nevertheless a complete study of the physics of sound, of musical sounds, of rhythm, cadence and linguistic sounds. A special chapter on the pathology of hearing gives in simple formthe fundamental tests used by otologists and the common pathologic conditions associated with defects of hearing. Emphasis is laid especially on the necessity of psychologic as well as physiologic determinations. The final chapter deals with musical education and offers many practical hints.
