  1. I was very disappointed with this latest book. I expected much more information on your cochlear implant. In an earlier blog, you had mentioned you were unhappy with it. Since I’m getting one in the fall, I would be interested in your experiences with the CI.


    • I didn’t see this comment till just now, 5 months after you wrote it. Apologies. I do have a whole chapter on c.i.’s in the book. I have spent a lot of time working on listening with the c.i. and my hearing is much improved. I really recommend daily practice. Hope you got your c.i. and that you’re happy with it.
