"No one has ever presented such a large body of materials related to the history of acoustics. The bountiful exposition of experiments, instruments and theory ensures that this book will be a necessary reference for anyone interested in the last two hundred years of acoustics."

"I found this book fascinating to read. The material is well chosen, the writing is clear and elegant, and the book is illustrated with figures taken from the original publications of the people concerned. For those who want to delve deeper, the early chapters have around 100 references each, and the later ones around 200. I recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the development of our subject - and that should be all of you!"
