"Inspiring as ever, Dr. Harvey is a master storyteller—weaving powerful personal and sometimes heart-wrenching stories with potent psychological insights, but without the jargon. Cleverly and beautifully told!" —Marylyn Howe, president, Association of Late-Deafened Adults
"Dr. Harvey has examined the depths of common human experiences and applied it to those with hearing loss. However, the material is relevant to anyone whose life touches those who can't hear well. . . . Dr. Harvey demonstrates the incredible capacity of humans, including himself, for growth when challenged, but with the reality that sometimes total success is elusive." —Susan Rezen, professor of audiology, Worcester State College; author, Coping with Hearing Loss
