    Few people really understand Deaf culture and the Deaf Community They think they do but unless you identify yourself as Deaf with a capital 'D' I don't believe you really do I was therefore intrigued to read Seeing Voices by Oliver Sacks mainly because he was hearing and until he started researching for this book had little understanding of the topic matter However Mr Sacks in my opinion has managed just that The book is quite heavy in part and the reader needs to jump backwards and forwards between the narrative and extensive footnotes that appear at the bottom of a good many pages but in doing so nothing escapes the genius of what he writes I should add that I myself are hearing and simply move at the edge of the Deaf Community as a CSW This was the first book that I read by Oliver Sacks and I have since become a massive fan of his work
