This is a British book written by the Professor of Physiology in the University of London at Charing Cross Hospital Medical School and Honorary Consultant Otologist to the Charing Cross Group of Hospitals. It is now in its second edition.

The subject will have limited value to most otolaryngologists but those with a particular interest in otology and especially the effect of noise on hearing may find the following chapters worth reading: "Temporary Effects of Noise on Hearing"; "Permanent Effects of Noise on Hearing"; "Preservation of Hearing"; and "Impulse Noise, Intense Noise, Ultra Sound, Sonic Boom, Vibration." The first half of the book is rather basic and may appeal to students outside the field of hearing sciences.
