This book is written essentially for the hard-of-hearing person and devotes itself exclusively to what is generally called auditory training or hearing reeducation. It describes in detail, giving word lists and careful directions, how to make efficient use of residual hearing. Although the results claimed are somewhat too optimistic, this book fills an important void in the rehabilitation of the hard of hearing. It makes available to the public a concrete, easy-to-follow plan for hearing reeducation and brightens the outlook for many patients who do not have the benefit of training in large hearing centers.
In spite of overenthusiasm and exaggerated claims, this book is an excellent contribution to the field of otology.
