    This book may be by my wife, Katherine Bouton--well, it IS by my wife, Katherine Bouton--but I swear that alliance is not what lies behind those five stars. As a former publisher, editor-in-chief of Random House, I like to think I know the great books from the others, and this is the former. Honest, beyond helpful, down-to-earth but up-to-date, with painstaking research and fact checking and her own difficult but energizing personal experience palpable on every page, this book should be read by This book may be by my wife, Katherine Bouton--well, it IS by my wife, Katherine Bouton--but I swear that alliance is not what lies behind those five stars.

Very proud to be hitched to Katherine Bouton.

    This book was better than I was expecting. It wasn't all relevant to me personally, but the information was perfect for anyone experiencing hearing loss as an adult. The information that was relevant to me was very very good, the author brought up many points I hadn't thought of, and spoke about ways of handling certain situations (in work or friendships), and the information about technology apart from hearing aids, that can help was very useful - I hadn't heard of some of these types of techno This book was better than I was expecting.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this book and learned a lot from it.

    Advice isn't really "advice." Book is more a hearing-loss information thing, less "this is what worked for me" or tips. Like the job section, paraphrasing is: "lol don't bother, you're going to be discriminated against nearly everywhere. Try to find as many jobs that don't require hearing as you can" which... is demoralizing. That's not to say the book is bad. Just... not really helpful, I guess I would say? Maybe her newer book (since this one got pulled from the Kindle store, forcing me to have Advice isn't really "advice."

Maybe her newer book (since this one got pulled from the Kindle store, forcing me to have to buy it second-hand from a library dumping it on Amazon) is better, but... I'm not enthused to check when the major section I wanted help on (jobs) was pretty sparse/bleak.

    It was OK - helpful for me to read even though some of the tech stuff is a bit dated there were plenty of useful social tips and relatable stories. Definitely spurring more research on a cochlear implant

    Very helpful - I'm 31 and just about to get hearing aids, and while some of the age related parts here didn't apply to me, lots of the rest did! Fascinating!

    This book should be read by anyone with hearing loss. By their friends and family. By anyone who works with the public. By everyone, really. What a refreshingly honest, well written book. A breath of fresh air, tackling the myths and realisms of hearing loss.
