    1. Since this is non fiction I thought I would read a chapter a day and make it last. But I couldn't do it. I had to finish it all at once. Worthing states in the introduction that he had to understand what it was about this "seemingly ordinary an unassuming man that led him to defy the scientific and medical wisdom of the day and develop the world's first functionalonic ear." This book is not so much the story of the bionic ear but of the life of the man who made it a reality. Worthing's biography [...]

    2. This is the story of Graeme Clark, the man who invented the bionic ear. This book was readable and looked more at Graeme's life than the technical aspects of his invention. I really enjoyed how Graeme's faith was shared in a matter of fact way, it is just part of his life and who he is, and how it fits with his science.This book tells the story of a humble man who just wanted to fix ears, who went and achieved that goal.

    3. This is a truly inspirational book which details the life and work of the humble Australian man whose invention of the bionic ear has brought joy to thousands of people around the world by once again enabling them to hear. I particularly appreciated Worthing's emphasis on the uncomplicated reliance on Clark's faith as it relates to his work and life. Highly recommended.
