From The Midwest Book Review’s library newsletter California Bookwatch

Deaf-Blind Reality: Living the Life offers a more complete exploration of what life is like for people with a combination of vision and hearing loss, gathering the results of interviews with twelve deaf-blind individuals, including himself, who live around the world. Each offers a description of their daily lives, family reactions and support, experiences in school and throughout life, and discuss their education and relationships, offering candid assessments of challenges and keys to successful living alike. It’s especially notable as a solid addition to the literature because competing titles often focus on singular achievements, not the overall bigger picture of living in a different world. Any holding concerned with deaf-blind social issues needs this!

Scott M. Stoffel is a retired systems engineer and freelance writer in Lansdale, PA.
