"The Sound Book-- The Science of the Sonic Wonders of the World" by Trevor Cox; "Cox is fascinated by room acoustics, and how places can be designed for speech, like classrooms, and beautiful music, like auditoriums and concert halls. you can’t help but get caught up in his enthusiasm-- He's Kind of like the Indiana Jones of Acoustic research and exploration." -Randy Kinkel
