Practical, concise, and time-saving, Hearing Disorders Handbook provides comprehensive, reliable and accurate descriptions of auditory and vestibular disorders, their frequency of occurrence, etiology, diagnosis, and management - all in a single resource.

It approaches the subject from a multitude of perspectives from the diverse disciplines that make up the typical hearing rehabilitation team - including audiologists, otologists, speech and language pathologists, plus those working in the related fields of education, genetics, pediatrics, and psychology. Each topic is presented in concise and consistently organized form, sifting the essential from the unessential, and includes references to original print and electronic sources. Gaps in the knowledge of hearing and vestibular disorders are clearly denoted and directions to sources of information that supplement the material available about each disorder are given.


"For advanced students and scholars, this work will serve as a valuable and convenient quick reference. Since it is very clearly written, it could be helpful to some general readers."
L.A. Hartman, Coastal Carolina University, CHOICE: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries (2009)

"The handbook covers frequency of occurrence, diagnosis, and management of many hearing disorders as well as related aspects. Each disorder is explained in the same organized manner, making this book very user friendly."
Kelly Kaufman, AuD (La Salle University School of Nursing and Health Sciences), Doody's Review Service (2008)

"Miller and Schein do an excellent job of presenting a large body of information that is non-biased, clinically relevant, and current without resorting to bullet points or factoids."
Kirstin Chiasson (Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, Ohio), International Journal of Audiology (2009)

"This is a worthy effort by Dr Maurice H Miller and Dr Jerome D Schein to help hearing professionals and students quickly acquire an understanding of hearing disorders. ... I would recommend this book to all hearing care professionals and students for its clarity and reliable descriptions of auditory and vestibular disorders. This book encourages thoughtful consideration of current trends in hearing disorder."
Dr. Nadeem Mukhtar, Community Ear and Hearing Health (2009)

"... A small, concise, easy "on the go" reference, which would be most useful for professionals in medical settings. ... This book provided excellent information."
Jill Foltz, AuD, Otology & Neurotology (2010)
