Seeing Voices: A Journey into the World of the Deaf

by Oliver Sacks - £9.99  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780330523646 | ISBN 10: 0330523643

Imaginative and insightful, Seeing Voices offers a way into a world that is, for many people, alien and unfamiliar for to be profoundly deaf is not just to live in a world of silence, but also to live in a world where the visual is paramount.
 
In this remarkable book, Oliver Sacks explores the consequences of this, including the different ways in which the deaf and the hearing learn to categorize their respective worlds and how they convey and communicate those experiences to others.

"Seeing Voices is a manifesto, characteristically humane and impassioned; once more, Sacks proves he is the doyen of science with a human face."
(Sunday Times)
