WHO WILL DROWN THE SOUND?

After the basics of sound are explained (far less effectively than in Branley's High Sounds, Low Sounds, 1967), comes a definition of sound pollution (""too much sound and sound for too long""), a few examples expressed in decibels, and a perfunctory list of what engineers and others are doing to reduce, reflect, or absorb sound waves. With its pedestrian two-color illustrations, this does little more than broach the subject.
