This book is written specifically and exclusively for lay people by an author who has had a vast experience in clinical otology and particularly rehabilitation. It provides a general perspective of all aspects of hearing and deafness. Attesting to its simplicity is the absence of any figures, and not a single audiogram appears in the book. It is specifically designed to help people who have hearing problems. Special emphasis is placed upon deafness in children and rehabilitation as well as hearing aids. Because there is no other book known to the reviewer that reaches the lay public on the same level as this one, he believes it has a great deal of usefulness and should be very well received by the general public.
