Praise for David Owen and his books:

“David Owen aptly addresses the medical, emotional, and social aspects of hearing loss, along with some surprising revelations about technology and hearing aids. He presents the latest information in a way that makes you want to keep reading.” –Barbara Kelley, executive director, Hearing Loss Association of America

“As this book makes clear, most of us will encounter hearing loss at some point in our lives;, we all stand to gain from reading Volume Control for practical reasons alone. But David Owen brims with a curiosity that’s beautifully matched by his journalistic alacrity. How many times I beamed with sheer delight simply to follow the author down one fascinating path after another.” –Leah Hager Cohen, author of Strangers and Cousins

“A wide-ranging exploration of our vital sense of hearing, and the consequences when it wanes. Owen makes accessible not only the fascinating biology of hearing, but the complexities of remedying its loss.” Jerome Groopman, Dina and Raphael Recanati Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and author of The Anatomy of Hope

“Fascinating, thoughtful, and wise.” –Bill Bryson

“Owen has the keen observation of a birder combined with the breezy writing to draw you in with unusual insights.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Effortlessly engaging.” –NPR

“Wonderfully written” —The Wall Street Journal

“At once informative, entertaining, and unsparing.” –Elizabeth Kolbert, author of The Sixth Extinction
