The three authoresses, themselves deaf, are, according to Dr. Phillips, the first of their profession to enter the new field of social work for the deafened. Their full sympathy therefore goes to those unfortunately afflicted with defective hearing. They consider the different aids offered the hard of hearing, not only from a social standpoint, but also from that of their economic struggle. For the hard of hearing, the reading of this book will bring much information and encouragement. To those who are desirous of helping the unfortunate deaf, it will offer many suggestions and much information.
