With Brian Diamond Imagine yourself as a normal, healthy seven-year-old child. One day you begin to feel sick, showing signs of a fever, and thinking you just have the flu, your parents tuck you into bed and tell you to rest. But as you awake some time later, you look up and realize that your father’s lips are moving but you cannot hear what he is saying. The music and sounds around you are no longer there. You are deaf,and your life has abruptly and forever changed. This was author Lois Hooper Diamond’s reality, and in Breaking the Sound Barrier, she takes you into the world of the millions who live without sound. Although spinal meningitis took her hearing when she was just a little girl, Lois would go on to champion and give voice to her community. Deafness is more than just hearing loss;it is a culture,and Lois answers a number of questions about hearing loss while exploring issues related to whether deaf children should be taught to lip-read and orally communicate or be encouraged to learn sign language

The host of Democracy Now! breaks through the corporate media’s lies, sound bites, and silence in this New York Times–bestselling collection of articles. In place of the usual suspects—the “experts” who, in Amy Goodman’s words, “know so little about so much, explain the world to us, and get it so wrong”—this accessible, lively collection allows the voices the corporate media exclude and ignore to be heard loud and clear. From community organizers in New Orleans, to the courageous American soldiers who’ve said “no” to Washington’s wars, to victims of torture and police violence, we are given the extraordinary opportunity to hear ordinary people standing up and speaking out. Written with all of the fierce intelligence and passion for truth that millions have come to expect from Amy Goodman’s reportage, Breaking the Sound Barrier proves the power that independent journalism can have in the struggle for a better world, one in which ordinary citizens are the true experts of their own lives and communities. Praise for Amy Goodman and Breaking the Sound Barrier “Amy Goodman has taken investigative journalism to new heights.” —Noam Chomsky, leading public intellectual and author of Hopes and Prospects “Amy, as you will discover on every page of this book, knows the critical question for journalists is how close they are to the truth, not how close they are to power.” —From the foreword by Bill Moyers, author of Moyers on America “What journalism should be: beholden to the interests of people, not power and profit.” —Arundhati Roy, author of The End of Imagination “Those unfamiliar with Goodman’s work will discover a bold voice that refuses to mince words regardless of the topic or target, along with a wealth of behind-the-headlines reporting.” —Publishers Weekly
Chuck Yeager loved to fly. His determination led him to be a fighter and test pilot. He flew as often as he could in any craft he could. Eventually, he became the expert on military aircraft. He knew just what each plane could do, and more importantly, what it couldnt. As important as knowing how far he could push a plane, he also knew when to pull back. His pioneering efforts in breaking the sound barrier made modern aviation and space exploration possible.
Read about the sound barrier, how people broke it, and why breaking it was important.

Arguments about musical aesthetics often degenerate into "shouting matchesy that end in stalemate. In Breaking the Sound Barrier, John Winsor clears the air by presenting evidence that some works are, in fact, objectively better than others. This is a particularly timely issue because a great deal of bad music is being performed in American concert halls right now and a great deal of good music isn't. If you believe that qualitative judgment in the arts is purely subjective, this book should persuade you to rethink your position. If, on the other hand, you think there is a genuine qualitative difference between one musical work and another, this book will provide you with relevant ammunition. Winsor defines music, presents some empirical evidence from the field of music psychology, relates that evidence to events in Western music history, and explains what works and what doesn'tyand why. He demonstrates that from the advent of notation to the present, music has, in fact, progressed and not merely changed. He then exposes some major errors in modernist and postmodernist writing that have disrupted music's progress and recommends remedial action for restoring the mainstream literary tradition. "This is a challenging and thought-provoking book." yDiana Deutsch, Professor of Psychology, University of California, San Diego. "John Winsor tackles big questions about music and our perceptions, coming at them head-on. He anticipates our reactions and goes a long way toward resolving nagging issues of modern music. A clear, honest book." yKile Smith, Curator, Fleisher Collection of Orchestral Music, Free Library of Philadelphia.
