The term ‘tinnitus’ is searched over 110,000+ times every month. Unfortunately, much of the information readily available through internet searches is inaccurate, whereas most evidence-based information is only available through peer-reviewed journal articles often containing dense scientific jargon. Tinnitus: Advances in Prevention, Assessment, and Management aims to bridge this gap by providing up-to-date and evidence-based information on tinnitus prevention, assessment, and management. Presented in a quick, easy-to-read format, this text offers a practical and handy resource for busy practitioners and health profession students, as well as individuals with bothersome tinnitus.

Each section contains short chapters providing accessible overviews of research related to tinnitus and hyperacusis. Section I delves into various approaches for prevention of hearing loss and tinnitus. Section II covers tinnitus assessment, while Section III introduces readers to a range of tinnitus management solutions. Section IV focuses solely on recent advances in assessment and management of hyperacusis and other disorders of decreased sound tolerance. Authors of Section V review recent tinnitus-related developments, including social media use and COVID-19. The final section consists of interesting real-life case studies involving patients with bothersome tinnitus.

“This book gives a thorough perusal of the history and research on tinnitus… Each chapter includes an introduction, background, recent advances, clinical applications, future directions, key messages, and references, which gives the text cohesiveness. 
The first line of the preface, "Imagine not being able to hear silence... ever," screams of the necessity of this resource. This book offers a deep and broad covering of the topic of tinnitus. 
This book is a treasure trove of all things tinnitus. It covers every detail about tinnitus including prevention, assessment, management, related disorders, recent developments, social media and apps on the subject, as well as COVID-19 implications. Research is the center focus of the book. 
… One of the best aspects of the book is the illustrations that list the research so readers can quickly see the trends. Since almost 50% of the internet information on this topic is incorrect, this is an important work. This book provides peer-reviewed research leading to evidence-based practice for prevention, assessment, and management of tinnitus. The five case studies are very helpful to apply the information.”

–Lori J. Newport, AuD, Biola University, from Doody’s Reviews (August 2022)

“… This comprehensive book, edited by US audiologists Aniruddha K. Deshpande and James W. Hall III includes contributions from over 43 tinnitus experts from around the world and provides access to supplementary material on a companion website...
Tinnitus is a condition that almost every audiologist will encounter throughout their career. Having a good foundation of knowledge to assist people suffering from the effects of tinnitus is an important skill. This book aims to bridg the gap between easily accessible but often inaccurate information available on the internet and peer-reviewed journal articles containing dense scientific jargon. Although it gets very technical and can read like a journal article in parts (which is inevitable with such a complex topic), I feel that the authors have achieved their aims. This book is an excellent reference that more than adequately encompasses the complex field of tinnitus and would be a good resource in any clinic or educational setting.” 
–Damon Shepherd, Accredited Audiologist, from Audiology Australia (December 2022)

“Tinnitus: Advances in Prevention, Assessment, and Management is a timely update on the current state of the art of tinnitus management. This multiauthored text provides an excellent explanation of the problem of tinnitus from several perspectives, including medical, audiological, public health, psychological, and even the social media perspective.
The text is divided into six sections: 1) prevention of hearing loss and tinnitus, 2) assessment of tinnitus, 3) management of tinnitus, 4) hyperacusis, 5) recent developments, and 6) illustrative clinical scenarios.
In section 1, a multidisciplinary group discusses mechanisms of tinnitus starting with noise induced tinnitus. There is a description of synaptopathy in noise-induced tinnitus and the role of central dysregulation after noise trauma in tinnitus…
In the management of tinnitus section, there is an interesting chapter on self-directed tinnitus therapy…The book does an excellent job of looking for evidence-based treatments and advising readers of the lack of evidence for much of the dietary supplement and complementary therapy management strategies. In the section on cutting edge approaches in tinnitus management, Drs. Leong and Vanneste do a superb job summarizing the state of the art of noninvasive neuromodulation for tinnitus including transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial direct current stimulation, transcranial alternating current stimulation, transcranial random noise stimulation, neurofeedback, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation as well as transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation…This chapter is a real highlight of the book with excellent references.
...The book even includes a chapter on implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for tinnitus evaluation and management…
Overall, this book is excellent to read as a cover-to-cover update or to use as a reference relying on the generous reference section and detailed index. This book is recommended for all clinicians who manage tinnitus patients as an update with modern references of the state of the art in tinnitus diagnosis and management. It is particularly applicable for otolaryngology residents and neurotology fellows as a comprehensive resource for tinnitus management with excellent clues for needed research in this growing field.”
