Chorost, Michael     Rebuilt
Author's Bio 
Michael Chorost was born with severe hearing loss because of the common epidemic called rubella that was prevalent in the sixties. After thirty-eight years of living with regular hearing aids, he lost the rest of his hearing on a business trip in California. He then decided to receive a cochlear implant shortly after the loss of his remaining hearing and described his new life in the book Rebuilt. The book itself talks mainly about his experience from a philosophical stand point to re-engineer the common definition of cyborgs and what defines humanity. Enjoy!
