Summary
In this look at the widespread and commonly misunderstood phenomenon of hearing loss, Bouton recounts her own journey into deafness - and her return to the hearing world through the miracles of technology. She speaks with doctors, audiologists, neurobiologists, and others searching for causes and a cure, as well as with those who have experienced hearing loss, interweaving their stories with her own. It's an engaging and informative account of what it's like to live with an invisible disability - a must-read not only for those with hearing loss, who will recognize their stories in Bouton's own, but for their families, friends, employers, and caregivers
