In this book, audiologist and author John M. Burkey shows baby boomers how they can continue to enjoy their active lifestyles, regardless of whether they are experiencing diminished or severely compromised hearing abilities. In a reassuring and straightforward style, Burkey explains the typical causes of hearing loss, from genetic factors to years of exposure to loud noises. He also explains the sometimes confusing results of a hearing test.
The author suggests ways to manage daily activities by using a range of techniques, equipment and medical procedures. He describes reconstructive surgery, cochlear implants and bone-anchored hearing aids.
