Editorial Reviews

Bob Hope
One of the toughest things in the world is a hearing problem. I've been especially grateful to Howard over the years for his fine work in keeping my audiences hearing --and laughing. Now having read his book, I'm glad he's kept to his doctoring because he's a darn good storyteller and I don't need the competition.
Mary Martin
This is a magnificent story about an extraordinary person who has made such a difference to the world of sound through his devotion to helping those who live with the problem of impaired hearing.
Norman Vincent Peale
This is a great story of the greatest name in ear therapy and should be one of the outstanding biographies of an American doctor of medicine. It is packed full of humor, pathos, struggle, human helpfulness and great achievement. It possesses all of the elements that go to make up an inspiring life story.
Robert Schuler
The story of Howard House's life is one to encourage and hearten all of us. He has shown us what a profound difference can be made in this world by a lot of enthusiasm and a great deal of dedication.
William Randolph Hearst, Jr.
Dr. Howard P. House's refreshing story is one with few parallels. It is always encouraging to read how success comes to one who courageously stands up for the truth, loves his chosen profession and his fellow human.
