New York Times bestselling author

A history of the deaf and a passionate meditation on the richness of sign language.

Imaginative and insightful, Seeing Voices offers a way into a world that is, for many people, alien and unfamiliar – for to be profoundly deaf is not just to live in a world of silence but also to live in a world where the visual is paramount. In this remarkable book, Oliver Sacks explores the consequences of this, including the different ways in which the deaf and the hearing impaired learn to categorise their respective worlds – and how they convey and communicate those experiences to others.

'Seeing Voices is a manifesto, characteristically humane and impassioned; once more, Sacks proves he is the doyen of science with a human face.'
The Sunday Times

'Scholarly and carefully documented, Seeing Voices makes the gigantic leap so essential to understanding total deafness.'
The Sunday Telegraph

'Empathetic, intelligent and compassionate.'
The Guardian
