Editorial Reviews

“It made me laugh, broke my heart, and made me think of so many things.What a funny, bright, kind and loving young man!  His pain makes mehurt, yet he had such an enormous capacity for love in spite of thecruelty and injustices he endured.  I just want to hold him in my armsand not let go.” –Nancy Ferrer, Outlaw Reviews

“I read this book in a single sitting. It is an inspirational, often poignant, occasionallybrutal, collection of essays about love, life, beauty, suffering,triumph, joy, pain and responsibility. I do not generally likecollections of essays as a format preferring a straight line narrative.Had I read only the synopsis of this work without the author’sadditional comments in requesting the review I would not have picked itup. Do not judge this book by its synopsis. Pick it up. Read it. Fivestars.”- Bob Cherny, The LL Book Reviews

As someone who has devoted their life to sound, and I suppose, at the same time silence, it is always very compelling for me to learn theperspective of someone who is deaf, and understands the vibrationspectrum in a very different, but no less meaningful way.This book transcends all differences, stereotypes, judgements and becomesthe sharing forth of a very honest human experience relevant to all ofus, connected to all of us.”-Ana Cristina Caelen, Sound Therapist and Composer

A beautiful and moving collection of essays, diary and blog entries written by a young deaf man…I read this collection with a sense ofwonder, humility and inspiration and the writing deeply touched me on amultitude of levels”-Indie Reviews
