[AUDITORY] Good introductory literature on cochlear implants

I received many recommendations on this topic. Thanks to (in no particular order): Matthew Fitzgerald, Tim Green, Matthias Milczynski, Kaibao Nie, David Grayden, Sarah Hargus Ferguson, Matthias Latzel, Tilak Ratnanather, David Morris & Tom Francart.

Highly recommended, and mentioned by at least 4 respondents:
Programming Cochlear Implants (Core Clincal Concepts in Audiology) Jace Wolfe & Ein Schafer
Publication Date: March 31, 2010 (ISBN-10: 1597563722, ISBN-13: 978-1597563727)

'It's far more up to date than any of the much more expensive textbooks ... and it explains the technical aspects as well as programming, with lots of attention to the specific details of the devices made by the 3 different manufacturers. A new edition is slated for March 2014 but the 2010 is terrific. '
