FloridaSPL cited in recent book on sound

If you recall, FloridaSPL was featured in a large article in the March 2009 issue of Playboy. This article was basically an excerpt of George Prochnik's book, "In Pursuit of Silence".

Prochnik leaves the noisy confines of New York City and goes on a global quest to find those who still value silence. He examines the never-ending series of sounds that pervade his thoughts on a daily basis the traffic helicopters, the leaky iPods, the neighbors who hold loud parties and researches the scientific effects of noise on our bodies. Prochnik also dives into the subculture of competitive loud car-stereo tournaments. (I didn't hear sound, the author observes of one window-shattering system. I just experienced my bones and heart bursting apart through my skin.)
