Reviews of the First Edition A monumental study which supersedes Beranek's 1962 classic... Barron's present book is a must for all architects faced with a major auditorium. The Architects' Journal
...wonderfully clear exposition and a fascinating study...an excellent textbook and an introduction to the subject of acoustics which all theatre technicans would find useful. The Stage
This book is undoubtedly destined to become a classic. It is the first book since L L Beranek's classic, Music, Acoustics and Architecture (1962) to deal with auditorium acoustics in the wider context of architecture...it can be read and enjoyed by acousticians and architects alike...it is beautifully written and produced and hence worth every penny Journal of Sound and Vibrations
