A misleading statement appeared in Odyssey's Winter 2003 review, Cochlear Implants in Children: Ethics and Choices, by John B. Christiansen and Irene W. Leigh. The reviewer and the editor would like to clarify that while only one author has a cochlear implant, the other author is also deaf and both authors provided "an 'inside view' of the impact of the cochlear implant on the deaf community."
