  1. Any chance of having recorded version of your books? I have some hearing loss and I can no longer read books, but I listen to them on Audible.


  2. What are your thoughts on hearing-loss related disorders such as auditory dyslexia? This is the Mrs. Malaprop scenario with misheard words, e.g. goat is confused with ghost in a talk about Halloween costumes .


    • That’s beyond my level of expertise but read Oliver Sacks on Mishearings: https://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/07/opinion/oliver-sacks-mishearings.html. There are also a couple of good books on auditory processing disorder. You can find them on Amazon by googling. One is “When the Brain Can’t Hear.” Another excellent book is by a neurologist at UCSF whose name I can’t remember right now. Can’t remember the book title either. Maybe another reader can help. Or I’ll let you know when it comes to me. I wrote about it at some length in my book “Shouting Won’t Help.”
