With Seeing Voices Dr Sacks launches us on a journey into the world of the deaf which he explores with the same passion and insight that have illuminated other human conditions for his readers everywhere. Oliver Sacks, blessed with an understanding heart and poetic voice, speaks the language of the deaf. An exquisite, as well as revelatory, work Studs Terkel This scholarly and carefully documented book is a landmark for deaf rights. It makes the gigantic, imaginative leap so essential to understanding total deafness Jack Ashley, Sunday Telegraph Compelling . . . A journey well worth taking . . . One cannot read more than a few pages of Sacks without seeing something in a new way Los Angeles Times Written by a hearing and caring neurologist who through empathy and contact has penetrated a long way into deaf culture. What he has written about should be compulsory reading I do not recall another book which puts the issues so clearly for the rest of us Alex Comfort, Guardian A manifesto characteristically humane and impassioned . . . Once more Sacks proves he is the doyen of science with a human face Roy Porter, Sunday Times
