Nothing quite as comprehensive, concise and direct has appeared as this 45 page octavo brief on the current trends in handling the problems of deafness. The book is an outline of the "Audiology Center" of the future, with all aspects of deafness covered. There are chapters on the roles of the acoustic physicist, psychologist, testing technician, sociologist, speech therapist and otologist. It will indeed be a welcome day when such groups of persons can cooperate toward the accomplishment of relief of the many-sided handicap.

An excellent bibliography completes the book. The format and printing are unusually attractive.
