Re: introductory reading on auditory perception

At the risk of self promotion. Fundamentals of Hearing: An Introduction (5th Edition), Elsevier Press, has just come out and about half the book is on sensation and perception.

Hi Erin,

I use chapters out of Chris Plack's book 'The Sense of Hearing'. 
(Lawrence Erlbaum) for precisely this. The book is short, engagingly 
written, accurate, and up to date -- published 2005. Its also softcover, 
so reasonably inexpensive and practical for students to buy.
