Part 1 of this book, which comprises 73 pages, deals with background and the importance of hearing loss and its detection in the preschool child. The last part presents the design, results, and analysis of a project developed by the Public Health Service and the Callier Center for Communicative Disorders and is aimed at establishing a comparison between screening audiometry and the use of a medical questionnaire with otolaryngologic findings based on history, physical examination, and pure-tone audiometry in over 800 preschool children.

The book is easily read, although the last half is heavy on supportive tabular data. The information it contains is interesting and of some value to the otologist but not too practical for the general otolaryngologist.
