Summary

Hearing is essential for normal communication. We are able to localise sound with surprising accuracy and can detect time differences as small as the time it takes for sound to pass from the mouth of one person to the ear of another. However, hearing loss is underdiagnosed, poorly understood and a common cause of social isolation. Hearing: An Introduction and Practical Guide provides a basic understanding of the science of hearing, the causes of hearing loss and how hearing loss can be clinically assessed and effectively treated.

The book is divided into three sections, beginning with a review of the basic anatomy, physiology and principles of hearing. The second section addresses clinical and audiological assessment of hearing as well as imaging of the ear. The third section features an extensive series of chapters on focused topics covering the range of causes of hearing loss, their management and options for hearing rehabilitation.

Clear, concise and comprehensive, Hearing: An Introduction and Practical Guide is an excellent source of information for ENT surgeons, general practitioners and trainees. It presents a quick reference and practical guide for assessing and managing patients with hearing loss.
