Berendt goes at any and all facets of our sense of hearing. Having just read "The Sonic Boom", where Berendt was referenced several times, I had to get it at the local library because the Boom book had already inspired me greatly, and I had learned a lot.
After receiving the library copy, I found myself wanting to underline a lot, so I decided to hunt the book down on amazon and get my own permanent copy. Turns out it's out of print.
I'm glad I found a paperback in good condition, though hardcover would've been nice for this work that surely I'll re-reference in years to come. Berendt appears to be quite with the times, raising questions of electromagnetic pollution and other frequencies even outside the hearing range.
Lovely! More inspiring work like that please.
