The first major medical 'bionic' implant technology, it has transformed the everyday lives of people who are profoundly deaf. Throughout his career, his belief that the impossible could be achieved, his strong family support and his Christian faith have sustained him through many obstacles, and helped him overcome resistance to his ideas from people who doubted them...This new biography tells the inspiring story of Graeme's life, and the triumphs and the setbacks behind the invention of the bionic ear...'I found Mark Worthing's story of Graeme Clark moving and inspiring.It captures the spirit of a truly amazing man who changed the life of our daughter and of many thousands of others in the world.' Li Cunxin, author of Mao's Last Dancer..'An interesting and sometimes moving biography of a fascinating scientific pioneer who helped to bring hearing to the profoundly deaf.'
