The Science of Sound
The Science of Sound is a lavishly illustrated, authoritative text that comprehensively covers the science of sound. Students of acoustics, speech and learning and physics will appreciate this text. Emphasis is placed on understanding the phenomena of sound, and a wide variety of topics are discussed. Physics fundamentals are presented early to allow for a branching out of topics later in the course.

I used this book for a mid level course on the physics of sound, however it is not what I thought it was. I was hoping for in depth formal treatments of acoustic phenomenon using mathematical methods however this book requires no more than high-school algebra. There is no mathematical physics in this book, whatsoever; it reads more like an encyclopedia than a physics book. That said, it is fairly comprehensive if you are going to treat it as an encyclopedia, there are sections on musical instruments and scales, the perception of sound, as well as the use of electronics in the generation of sound. Decent book as a general science reference or to get heuristic ideas but not as a rigorous or detailed treatment of acoustic phenomenon.
