The author sets out to provide a comprehensive examination of both theoretical and applied issues in the field of audiological rehabilitation. Even her choice of title alerts the reader that the text will include more than just information on lipreading and auditory training.
Dr Chermak's book is both reference text and resource guide. The author intends the book to be for undergraduate and graduate students and clinicians who work with the hearing impaired, as well as for other professionals who have some secondary involvement with a hard-of-hearing population. It is because of the dual strengths of the book, ie, reference and resource, that the text is a good one for its intended readership, although one particular reader might not find all parts of the text equally relevant.
As a reference text, topics such as basic acoustics, speech production and speech perception, information and communication theory, sensory systems functioning, and structure
