Question description

A Quiet World—Living with Hearing Loss 

In “Close-Up: Living in a Silent World,” text author David Myers gives a personal account of his mother’s and now his own personal challenge in dealing with hearing loss. In his book A Quiet World, Myers tells much more of this moving story.  In diary fashion, Myers relates the problems at home and at work that accompany gradual hearing loss. He recounts errors tragic and humorous. Both from his personal experience and his expertise as a research psychologist he helps readers understand the impact of the impairment on sufferers and on those closest to them. As Paul Chance observes, Myers helps his audience appreciate how the inability to hear can become the inability to connect. Myers’ later journal entries describe, for example, his encounters with new technologies and recent insights into the nature of hearing.
