The guide offers practical solutions for ordinary noise problems that a person is likely to meet. Discussions are made of sound generation, transmission to the listener, and impacts on hearing and well being. Recommendations are made for controlling noise both at source and in travel, and for protecting the listener. Warning signs are noted that determine whether one is being subjected to hazardous prolonged noise. Remedies are suggested for home, work, and school, for traveling, and in the community. An index is given for noise sources.
