This is an all-you-need-to-know book about hearing loss and deafness, including facts, experiences and words of wisdom from experts at the RNID, audiologists, deaf activists and people who use and teach sign language. Having been on her own deaf journey, Samantha Baines has met wonderful, interesting, courageous people of all ages who also happen to be deaf. In this book, alongside the experts, she weaves together their insights and advice and, importantly, teaches those of us who aren’t deaf, what it is like for those who are. Along the way, she looks at:

* The first signs of hearing loss
* What is tinnitus?
* What to expect at a hearing test
* Will I lose my job?
* Am I disabled?
* What are hearing aids and why do you need them?
* Deaf dating
* Lipreading
* What is sign language?
* What not to say to someone with hearing loss
* And much more…
