For New Deafies...and Some Older Ones Like Me

I have a copy of this book, "A Survival Guide for New Deafies!" written by Amy Sargent. Even though I have had hearing loss longer than Amy has, I found this book to not only be helpful, but offer a few tips and perspectives I was missing out on. If you or someone you know is dealing with hearing loss, I would suggest getting a copy of this book for them and their family. Be sure to check out her book trailer and stop by her website. The video and links are below.

"This video book trailer introduces Deaf Girl Amy Sargent and her book "A Survival Guide for New Deafies!" Deaf Girl Amy was 27 years old when she started to lose her hearing, fast forward 15 years and she has written a book that covers everything from The Top Ten Rules for New Deafies, De-Mystifying Audiograms, Do's and Don'ts for Family and Friends to The Pros of Being a Deafie. The book was written specifically for people who suffer from late onset deafness. It is also for people who want to communicate with new deafies. This book is long overdue, especially as boomers age. A fast read that is simultaneously funny, inspirational and, informative.

Who can benefit from this book: Individuals experiencing hearing loss, Relatives, Friends, Neighbors, Teachers, Doctors & Nurses, Police Officers, Waiters, Bartenders, Customer Service Reps....in short everybody! Available for $14.95 at www.DeafGirlAmy.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Amazon.com and also available in eBook format through Kindle & Nook for $9.99" https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=qfk0pnt9fDQ "

  1. I bought her book on Kindle last year. I certainly recommend it too.

  2. I purchased her book too and I also recommend it. :-)

  3. Liz and Neil,

    I am happy to hear you are both pleased with Amy's book and recommend it, also. It is a valuable resource for anyone losing their hearing, or for family members.

    Thank you for stopping by and sharing your comment!
