When The Mind Hears is a thought provoking page-turner. It is so readable that I looked forward to every time I opened its pages. As it is told from Laurent Clerc's point of view, the reader is constantly looking and wondering about new developments in the struggle for a voice among the deaf. It leaves the hearing reader with a sense of regret that this amazing, tenacious group of people have been pushed aside for so long. Although it is a long book, it is definitely worth reading for anyone interested in Deaf History.
