Am guessing the translation is first thought is that you look for books on how to manipulate sound...or do you look for why sound affects people in certain ways...if it's the latter,you'll need a lifetime or two to find answers...if it's the former,the books are readily available.Please specify-

Electroacoustics? If you mean speakers and that stuff:

" the loudspeaker and headphone handbook " editor, John Borwick.

Will keep you happy with everything you never wanted to know about how to design the driver, a headphone, electrostatics, horns etc...

The one book that really got me started in acoustics and speaker building, and was required reading before I could understand the Audio Engineering Society preprints, was :

Acoustics by Leo L. Beranek

This book is still the first one I grab when I am looking for detailed information on an acoustics related issue.

Other excellent texts are :

Introduction to Electroacoustics and Audio Amplifier Design by W. Marshall Leach

Testing Loudspeakers by Joseph D'Appolito

A book with less technical challenge, but still an excellent guide, is :

The Loudspeaker Design Cookbook by Vance Dickason

The first three books will give you a good engineering education on electroacoustics (acoustics, speaker design, microphone design, some elactronics, and room acoustics) using a lot of advanced math if you chose to dig into the equations and physics behind acoustic design. The last book will give you a "how to" type of background without the need to do a lot of math and physics, obviously the basic understanding will be less.

Hope that helps answer your question,

one of the best you can purchase is by Marshall Leach "Electroacoustics and Audio Amplifier Design" -- i think you can get it off of his website or form Amazon.

Douglas Self has two books which are very good.
