Predictable message, but interesting journey Oct. 14 2010
By W. John Harrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Although the conclusion isn't very satisfying, the writing is lively and engaging, teaching what it needs to as it explores the author's quest.

Zero Decibels by George Foy June 29 2011
By JohnBurns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Encapsulates how much we are constantly assaulted by noise. Foy looks at all angles of sound, hearing and silence. I found his final thesis a bit disappointing.

Much too much authorial noise Jan. 22 2011
By M. Lang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A wonderful concept, with a few fascinating nuggets, unfortunately buried in a noisy ocean of the author's introspective and self-centered perspective, which totally drowns out the essence of the topic. If I want to read about someone's personal perspective on life, I suggest Montaigne, not Michelsen.

Can't wait to read it! May 28 2010
By T. Hadley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Heard the author interviewed on NPR: Here & Now. The topic is interesting and timely, given the amount of ambient noise we have to put up with every day, and the toll it takes on our lives. Hearing health is a neglected area in our society and any examination of the dangers, physical & psychological, are welcome.
