Praise

…an absorbing book, as accessible in its technical content as it is provocative in its cultural interpretations.—Daniel J. Kevles, The New York Review of Books

…enlivened by copious photographs and architectural illustrations—a valuable source.

Tom Perchard, The Wire (UK)

This is a marvelous book and a seminal primer on how and why technology modified our taste.

Derek Sugden, The Architectural Review

Thompson’s narrative is elegantly written and wonderfully engaging.

Leon Botstein, Los Angeles Times Book Review

The Soundscape of Modernity describes the modern development of acoustics in wonderful and easily understood detail.

John Bishop, The American Organist
