Due to popular demand, I’ve published a general second edition of Tinnitus Toolbox Hyperacusis Handbook. This is an abridged version of the original book. Changes include fewer acronyms, less science, and only general information on noise-induced damage. The general version book is available in ebook and paperback versions.
The Desk Reference Edition is the original content version with acronyms and plain language reviews of evidence-based science including noise risk to hearing health. This book is only available in paperback.
