This is a paperbound book written principally for the layman describing the over-all problems associated with hearing loss. The author has had a vast experience in these problems and presents the material in a very lucid and simple manner. Throughout the book there are several sketches and audiograms illustrating the problems discussed, and the book is very readable.
It is an excellent addition to the practicing otologist for recommendation to hard-of-hearing patients.
The appendix describing speech and hearing centers throughout the United States is very limited and somewhat deceiving for it tends to refer patients to large centers which may not be equipped to give them the type of otological attention they initially need. The book, however, is very well written and a worthwhile contribution to practice.
