This is a book about joy and the wonder of small things. More than a diary of Romoff's first-year experiences with her cochlear implant (CI), it is a record of her growing confidence as her hearing gradually improved after a 30-year decline into profound deafness. Compiled from her Internet postings, the book offers much for those contemplating a CI but also for anyone who enjoys graceful writing. Romoff draws the reader into a world of rediscovered delights: the ping of an elevator button, the jingle of keys, or the pleasures of social gatherings, music, and no-longer-silent nature walks. This book does not address the technical aspects of cochlear implants or the controversy over implants within the deaf community, but it does chronicle one person's yearlong odyssey from deafness to functional hearing. Purchase where interest warrants. Ann Forister, Roseville P.L., CA
