Communication forms the basis for how we live with one another. For those who are partially deaf, communication becomes difficult, and society has done little to make their lives easier. Gerald Shea offers a tour through the lives of the partially deaf, from the history of hearing science to the ways in which those with hearing issues fall between the cracks.
