Tinnitus: Clinical and Research Perspectives summarizes contemporary findings from basic and clinical research regarding tinnitus mechanisms, effects, and interventions. The text features a collection of international authors, active researchers, and clinicians who provide an expansive scope of material that ensures relevance for patients and professionals. Reviews and reports of contemporary research findings underscore the text's value for classroom use in audiology and otolaryngology programs. Patients and students of audiology will benefit from the text's coverage of tinnitus mechanisms, emerging practice considerations, and expectations for outcomes--for example, recent successes of cognitive behavioral therapy, neuromodulation, and hearing aid use. These and other topics, such as the effects of noise and drugs on tinnitus, are reported in a way that enhances clinicians' ability to weave such strategies into their own work. The influence of tinnitus on all aspects of life is explored, from art to medicine and communication to isolation, thereby providing clinicians and patients a deeper understanding of and greater facility managing a tinnitus experience. Finally, this text includes case studies that provide a practical view of tinnitus effects and management approaches. The editors hope that the consideration of mechanisms, interventions, and outcomes resonates with patients, clinicians, and students of audiology.

Chapters such as Tinnitus in Literature, Film, and Music make clear the ubiquity of the tinnitus experience and reinforce for patients that while tinnitus may be isolating, it is a shared experience. Other chapters, such as Musical Hallucination, and Acoustic Shock, address problems experienced by patients who experience not only tinnitus, but unusual auditory system behaviors that may be confused with tinnitus, or that can exacerbate a patient’s emotional response to tinnitus. Chapters covering conditions that complicate tinnitus management provide clinical findings that support intervention strategies. Subtypes of tinnitus that require medical attention are reviewed in order to clarify sources of the sounds, as well as the appropriate referrals that should follow the identification of such sensations.


"The breadth of topics covered in Tinnitus: Clinical and Research Perspectives follows suit with previous works by the authors, collating a diverse and multidisciplinary approach to the management and understanding of tinnitus. The book thoroughly explores topics often skimmed over in other textbooks, including musical hallucinations, acoustic shock and somatic modulation of tinnitus. Engaging summaries of evidence-based practice, such as the nine-point list of recommendations for tinnitus hearing aid fittings, converted easily to real life practice. In fact, the rate in which chapters turned over into practical application was rewarding. I sought the book out more than once when complex or unusual cases arose, knowing the answer would likely be found more easily there than any publication search or wayward scroll through Google...I would happily recommend it to any clinician or related scientist stuck wading their way through the overwhelming plethora of research on the topic. Tinnitus: Clinical and Research Perspectives is a concise yet in-depth compendium that can be reached for in a moment of need, or used as a reliable source for the latest information on tinnitus and all its related sub-facets."
Siobhan McGinnity, in Audiology Now (2016)

"...this book broadens the readers' perspective to the impact of tinnitus on literature, film, and music. The chapter on tinnitus in culture is novel and impressive. Similarly, other chapters present deeper and more complex insight into the discussed problems than would be indicated by strict rules of evidence-based medical texts. The chapter on clinical aspects of somatic modulation of tinnitus is the most compelling. It summarizes the use of mechanisms associated with tinnitus modulation by means of multiple nonauditory pathways, opening new insights into the notion of effective tinnitus therapy in some subgroups of the sufferers..."
Olaf Zagolski, Department of Otolaryngology, St. John Grande's Hospital, in the International Journal of Audiology (2016)

"This book encapsulates the many facets of tinnitus from its enigmatic neurophysiological underpinnings to its cognitive effects and treatment approaches. The editors' multidisciplinary approach in recruiting field experts from a variety of clinical and research backgrounds provides the reader with a true sense of the current tinnitus climate, where consensus and certainty are still somewhat distant concepts. . . . Overall, ''Tinnitus: Clinical and Research Perspectives'' is an informative and valuable resource. It surveys many aspects of tinnitus, drawing upon up-to-date evidence from prominent figures in the international tinnitus community. Although appearing shiny and new at present, I am sure that my copy of this book will be dog-eared and worn in no time, a sure sign of a good book!"
Dr. Jeff Davies, Lecturer in Audiology, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK, in ENT & Audiology News, Vol 26 No 2 (May/June 2017)
