Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"This handbook represents one of the more recent additions to the expanding list of contributions arising from Springer, illuminating progress in auditory research. ... this is an excellent and authoritative description of the state of the art in human auditory genetics. This area is moving so fast and, hence I recommend interested readers to get it now ... ." (R. C. Trembath, Human Genetics, Vol. 114 (3), 2004)
