Need A Pick-Me-Up?
Maybe we all do at one time or another, especially those of us with a hearing loss, which can be extremely frustrating at times (like when we're awake).
I've been talking over the phone to Joe Perino for over 15 years. I've never met him, but we always end up talking for a half-hour or more. The guy is interesting and ingratiating --of course, so am I. Joe is a Ph.D. clinical psychologist, which is interesting but not especially notable. What is remarkable is that Joe put himself through all that schooling with a very severe hearing loss acquired at an early age, and has practiced successfully for years in a profession where listening is of utmost importance! A few years ago, I suggested to Joe that he write a book about hearing loss (so he tells me), but he opted to write one that might help a much wider audience and hence, "I think I'm hopeless... but I could be wrong. A guide to building self-confidence." It's about coping and it's an extremely readable 200 page paperback. I like the 14 point type that I can almost read without my glasses. I also like the way Joe puts things -- he gets right to the point. Here's a sample: "Self-confidence is not an absolute. A person does not have it or not have it. The idea that some people have none while others are confident in every area of their lives is a myth." Anyway, I thought this would be an extremely useful book for many of us.
