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.”
