The editor and contributors are all experts in their relative fields and work daily with professionals in the performing arts who are endangered by exposure to high-volume sound. Here they clearly present some of the anatomy and physiology of the hearing mechanism; medical problems associated with exposure to long-term, high volume sounds in the musical environment; and, in the bulk of the book, hearing protection and practical advice on preventive measures.
