@qu:The practical approach to the topics makes it a very readable book and shows the wealth of experience of the 10 contributing authors....This book certainly contains a wealth of material....The extensive use of photographs assist the reader in understanding the points made in the text....This is certainly a valuable reference book for all consultants and those who may be involved with noise and vibration control in building services. It is also an essential addition for engineering libraries, in particular those associated with educational institutions. @source:Acoustics Australia
