    A BOOK THAT’S MAKING A DIFFERENCE, March 21, 1999
    By A Customer

    I personally read this book as a practicing audiologist and was impressed by the breadth of material covered in such down-to-earth terms and easy-to-read format. I wasn’t sure if I was alone in my feelings regarding how beneficial I thought it would be for my patients, so I ordered multiple copies and began using them in my clinical practice. I can now honestly say that this book has changed the way I conduct my practice, becoming an integral part of my hearing aid dispensing process. Patients love it. It prepares them for what to expect, and family members can reap an equal harvest by understanding the feelings their loved ones are going through. As technology advances at a rapid rate, this book, and its subsequent revisions, will assist any hard of hearing person and their family. It hit’s a bullseye!

    Big Marks for its Thoroughness, Humor & Clarity, January 11, 1999
    By A Customer

    Carmen and his writers keep it simple and explain as they go, so that the reader gains a substantial and satisfying handhold on how and why and for whom hearing aids work. They examine the emotional difficulties (anger, frustration, denial) faced by all people with hearing loss, and the practical care of hearing aids — standard to programmable, behind-the-ear to completely-in-the-canal. We’ve looked for years for a resource like this to add to our list of informational materials. When we found it, we added it instantly. A very likeable book. [Excerpted from Review in TINNITUS TODAY, Vol 23, No 2, June 1998, p.18]

    A goldmine of information for the hard of hearing, April 18, 2001

    Kudos to clinical audiologist Richard Carmen for assembling this all-star cast of experts. I found this affordable, accessible volume to be loaded with interesting and practical information for us hard of hearing. Audiologists and scientists discuss the psychology and management of hearing loss, and new hearing technologies, and answer lots of questions: What causes ringing in the ears? How do aging, drugs, and noise affect hearing? What are the varieties of hearing aids now available? What cool new hearing assistance technologies might improve my life?
