Abstract:

For twenty-two years, Katherine Bouton had a secret that grew harder to keep every day: she had gone profoundly deaf in her left ear; her right was getting worse. Audiologists agree that we're experiencing a national epidemic of hearing impairment. At present, 50 million Americans suffer some degree of hearing loss. Using her own experience as a guide, Bouton examines the problem personally, psychologically, and physiologically, illuminating the startling effects of this invisible disability.
