    One thought on “A Quiet World: Living with Hearing Loss”

    1. I started this book to see what the deaf or hard of hearing what type of things they went through on a day to day basis. What I found was not just that but a couple things that I would like to recommend for a couple of my patients. it also talks if other books similar to this one. I learned a lot about hearing aids in general which has defiantly helped in my day to day conversations. i would recommend this to anyone that is starting to experience hearing loss, it would help to know what to expec [...]

    2. Inspiring, and also fascinating, as he is often wondering the technology will be like in 2010 (his diarised account goes through the 90s). Myers captures the emotional challenges of hearing loss, together with the more obvious physical ones, and he strongly puts forward the case of the impaired's family and friends too, and how they are affected. I read this book to help push me to address my own failing hearing, and it has worked.

    3. This is dated in terms of technology (publ. in 2000) but still offers a clear picture of what it's like to struggle with hearing loss--the denial, embarrassment, frustration, etc. Myers is a public figure, having book signings, going on talk shows for his other work, which adds another dimension to his story.

    4. Lots of good material. I'm not sure how it helps someone with hearing loss to cope, but it's good to know others are going through the same battles as you are.
