The For Hearing People Only 4th Edition is almost double the size as the previous edition! That means more questions, more answers and more content. It has been expanded into two volumes, and reflects changes in technology and telecommunications.

Concise, easy-to-read and designed for those with no prior background, For Hearing People Only makes a formidably complex subject accessible. Each chapter can be read as an independent unit. This is the first book of its kind—written especially for laypeople who are curious about deaf people, and would like to separate truth from stereotype, fact from misconception, reality from myth. For Hearing People Only makes a good introductory or supplemental text for Deaf studies or signing and interpreter students.

This two volume set includes 220 chapters with mini quizzes, scholarly citations, indexes and a bibliography.

Questions include:

  • Don’t all Deaf people read lips?
  • Is it OK to say ‘deaf-mute’ and ‘deaf-and-dumb’?
  • Do all deaf people benefit from hearing aids?
  • What bothers a deaf person most about hearing people?
