Noise and Its Effects
by Linda M. Luxon

Noise and Its Effects benefits from a plethora of international experts from a wide variety of disciplines who have contributed to the knowledge base in this area.

Noise and Its Effects gives an overview for the novice in the field, which providing a broad background across a range of disciplines for individual experts to use as a reference on a topic other that their own—medical, legal and social.

Noise and Its Effects has been liberally illustrated to facilitate appreciation of the key points discussed.
