This book is aimed at clinicians who are likely to use otoacoustic emission (OAE) testing in a clinical setting, who want to upgrade their learning and improve their skills. I feel this book is ideal for its target audience. Especially for clinicians who would like to understand in more depth the test techniques used, and results obtained.

I found the book to be well-laid-out in clear chapters that followed a logical sequence. This book is a nice size, so it is easy to hold and to take with you to read anywhere. This is a real bonus when you are a busy clinician who needs to read on the train or the bus. The book has an easy-to-read style, and if there is an area that you are particularly interested in, you can read the individual section and it will still make sense. It is very useful to be able to dip in and out of sections and find the information you are most interested in.

I found the history of otoacoustic emissions section to be enlightening. It serves as a good reminder of what an amazing structure the ear is. It was not something that I had ever thought about much before; I found it very interesting to learn about the background to the development of otoacoustic emissions as a test technique.

Throughout the book are summary tables which are great for finding facts and literature that you want to remind yourself of without having to look through whole chapters. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to increase their knowledge of OAE testing.
