In The Way I Hear It, Gael Hannan explodes one myth after another in a witty and insightful journey into the life with hearing loss – at every age. Part memoir, part survival guide, The Way I Hear It is an insider account of the frustrations of communicating with hearing loss: pillow talk and other relationships, raising a child, in the classroom and on the job, hearing technology and the everyday things we like to do.

Gael offers advice on how to bridge the gap between consumer and professional in order to get the best possible hearing health care, as well as tips for effective communication, poetic reflections and humorous, poignant stories from the people she has met in her advocacy work throughout North America.  This is a book for people with hearing loss—but also for their families,friends and the professionals who serve them.
