Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book will shake your preconceptions about the deaf, about language and about thought… Sacks [is] one of the finest and most thoughtful writers of our time." —Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Fascinating and richly rewarding… Sacks is a profoundly wise observer." —The Plain Dealer

"One cannot read more than a few pages of Sacks without seeing something in a new way. His breadth of understanding and expression seems limitless." —Kansas City Star

"A remarkable book, penetrating, subtle, persuasive… [It] will likely become a classic." —St. Louis Post-Dispatch --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

In what PW judged "an extraordinarily moving and thought-provoking report," neurologist Sacks scrutinizes the history of treatment of the deaf, investigates the expressive capabilities of sign language and gauges the linguistic and social pressures faced by deaf people. Illustrated.
Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book is quite heavy in part and the reader needs to jump backwards and forwards between the narrative and extensive footnote
