Sound: A Very Short Introduction
Reviews and Awards
"Wow! This book is nice...and cute...I highly recommend this book. Perhaps this is the best general book discussing "acoustics" in a very elementary sense." - Richard J. Peppin, Rion Co. Ltd. and Engineers for Change, Inc.
"The book has something for everyone, and the author has done a remarkable job in assembling so much information and condensing it into a truly pocket-size edition. I do not know of another title that covers so much about sound in a nontechnical yet scientific manner." - Michael Greenfield, Physics Today
"Sound: A Very Short Introduction contains an excellent balance of science and story, and illuminates the reader about many facets of this broad topic." -- Ray Eddy, H-Podcast
