This book on the various aspects of the measurement of hearing loss is a compilation of 17 chapters by a score of authors. It is intended as a text for graduate-level audiology courses. The editor suggests in the preface that it would also be useful for otolaryngologists; however, this presents some difficulty since the detail that most of the authors consider necessary for the designated student audience makes it difficult for any other reader to obtain an adequate synopsis in a reasonable reading time. This is only partly offset by the index, which is adequate for a text but not detailed enough for a shelf reference. Most chapters do include a very useful reference list. An otologist looking for a complete efficient shelf reference would also find the chapter on animal hearing, the one on pseudohypacusis, and much of the discussion (two chapters) on testing of the central auditory system
