Editorial Reviews

Review

'This wonderful gem of a book rings clear and true like a well-tuned piano. Open the book anywhere and you won't leave the concert!' —Gordon Hempton, Emmy Award-winning acoustic ecologist and author of One Square Inch of Silence

About the Author

Marsha Engle is a marketing executive who is legally deaf and communicates through lip reading and a hearing aid that amplifies the small amount of remaining hearing in her left ear. She sits on the board of the Geneva Academic Foundation and is president of Preservation Partners of the Fox Valley.

William Huber has a gift for seeing extraordinary images in ordinary sights. He creates art that showcases subjects from a unique perspective. He works extensively in North America and Europe with a client roster that includes Hyatt, Novotel, Sofitel, Trump, and USG.


More About the Author

Marsha Engle has been hearing impaired since childhood due to a progressive sensory neural loss. Now legally deaf, Marsha leads a relatively normal life through hearing aids and skilled lip reading. While the sounds of an ordinary day have slowly disappeared, Marsha was inspired to create this book to remind the rest of us that the everyday sounds of life are to be treasured. Marsha lives in Geneva, Illinois with her husband, Mark; daughter, Gracie; and loyal canine hearing assistant, Mickey.

"In this world of stress and anxiety, it was there for you all along, a free ticket to inner peace."

"Many thanks to Bill Huber, photographer, for the 100 beautiful images. We have had so much fun creating this book for you."

I got this book at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2010. As the author states herself, in today's world of stress and pressure we forget how much treasure is all around us. We just have to be willing to see and! to hear it. Although I am a person who does take time to admire the world around, this book reminded me of some pictures that went unnoticed so far. Thank you Marsha and William!

What a lovely salute to the ordinary, everyday sounds that so many of us take for granted! This delightful little book should be on everyone's coffee table, to be browsed periodically as a reminder of how fortunate we are to hear. The sounds of everyday keep us in touch with our surroundings, our loved ones, and our many unappreciated blessings. Thank you, Marsha Engle and William Huber, for your charming reminder that we are often so busy focusing on our to-do lists, our daily schedules, and our problems that we ignore the beautiful sounds that surround us and that keep us connected to the world and with each other. Take time today to be aware of your acoustic environment and appreciate the sounds from street-musicians, the fax machine receiving a message, the turning of book pages, your stomach growling, and all of the other sounds that rarely are acknowledged with appreciation. And most important of all, protect your hearing by avoiding loud sounds that may damage your precious ability to hear. For more information on conserving your hearing, visit [...]

Format: Hardcover
This is the kind of book one curls up in front of a fire with a cup of coffee and a loved one, slowly savoring each page. The images are lush, the text is sparse but poignant, bringing to mind sights, sounds and smells from the entire spectrum of life. Whether sharing with a partner or a child, it's a warm communal experience that will touch your heart and enrich your life. I love this book.

What an awesome collaboration! Thank you Marsha for sharing your gift with the rest of us. William's pictures truly bring these sounds to life. I am glad you have this book to help you remember all of the wonderful sounds of everyday living. I will try not to take them for granted.
