I'm currently about half way through this book which came out in November. It is fascinating. It appears to be a comprehensive description of what the title implies. It not only deals with what we consider "harmful" noise, it deals with the effects of everyday noise as well. It also has sections that discuss critical periods relating to cochlear implants and why some people get annoyed but certain noises and others don't. It also makes sure to separate the sections by animal and human research which is very helpful. I put it down for a month while I was preparing for grad school interviews but I plan on picking it back up tonight.
