Reviews

"M. David Egan's large-format book Architectural Acoustics...is another important work on our shelf, and is a must for all libraries." Glen Ballou in S&VC; "Architectural Acoustics is for the intelligent, college-level beginner, with a desire to learn basic concepts, as well as practical computation and design methods. There is nothing else in print that covers as broad an area of acoustics, and covers it in as much depth. It would take a library of a dozen titles to duplicate what's in this one book, and still that library would not be current (would these titles include references to quadratic-residue diffusers?), or as useful in the hands of an architect." Ted Uzzle in Sound & Communications
