Very clean, nice copy with no spine crease. Tightly bound and no names or writing. Only faults are a few minor faint spots to outer page edges visible when book is closed.A massive paperback with 654 pages including index. Illustrated throughout with charts, graphs and tables. The first four chapters concern themselves with the fundamentals of noise and noise pollution, and hearing and auditory perception, as well as with a definition of terms. The others address such issues as loudness, noisiness and vibration effects; presbycusis, socicusis, and nosocusis; noise-induced hearing loss and its prediction; noise-induced hearing impairment and handicap; mental and psychomotor task performance in noise; nonauditory-system response to noise and effects on health; reactions to community noise and guidelines for the assessment and control of noise.
