Shouting Won't Help: Why I - And 50 Million Other Americans - Can't Hear You Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Audiologists agree that were experiencing a national epidemic of hearing loss. At present, 48 million Americans—17 percent of the population—suffer some degree of loss. More than half are under the age of fifty-five. In cases like Katherine Boutons, who experienced sudden hearing loss at the age of thirty, the cause is unknown.

In this deftly written and deeply felt look at a widespread and widely misunderstood phenomenon, 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 those who have experienced hearing loss, weaving their stories with her own. Shouting Wont Help is an engaging and informative account of what its like to live with an invisible disability—a must-read not only for those with hearing loss, who will recognize their stories in Boutons own, but for their families, friends, employers, and caregivers.

A Kirkus Reviews Best Nonfiction Book of 2013
