In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Reviews A major flaw in this presentation is the author 's claim that the classical principles of learning were broadened, taking into account innate factors in linguistic development. The failure to achieve this aim is seen in the condensed and often cursory explanations given to normal speech and language development. A similar treatment is given to the role of imitation in language learning. Moreover, many of the chapters contain a largely behavioral explanation of the development of the linguistic behavior under consideration. Despite this flaw, the clear presentation of behavioral principles, and the effective integration of these principles into various methods of linguistic remediation make this book well worth including in any professional library on communication disorders and their remediation .

Berger, Ph.D., 297 pp., hardcover, The National Hearing Aid Society, 20361 Middlebelt, Livonia, MI48152, 1984. In my opinion, there is no equal text in print with regard to the historical aspects of hearing aids. The addition of historical data to this third edition of the book demonstrates that the author is continuing to make the work complete and accurate. One might quarrel with the limited amount of data in the text regarding the canal hearing aid since it has been available for over two years. The argument, however, would be with the lack of scientific data available on the popularity of the instrument. I strongly recommend this book. If the student interested in the history and operation of hearing aids does not have this book, his or her library is not complete.
