Journal of the Acoustical Society of America - Glenis R. Long

The author has produced a very readable, up-to-date textbook which is understandable by students with little previous exposure to either hearing or research....I highly recommend this book to instructors who are faced with the difficult task of providing an overview of the field of hearing research to students with little background in the sciences and mathematics.
