summary
Fifteen stories written by deaf/hard of hearing individuals who have had cochlear implants are told within the context of unique histories that are intimate, personal and moving. Readers will gain insight into the personal struggles, challenges, and benefits for those who made the decision to get a cochlear implant. The writers share their process over the decision to obtain an implant as well as the delights and disappointments in hearing with one. Many of the book’s contributors noted how their involvement in the deaf community and Deaf culture influenced their perceptions of cochlear implants.
