Good to learn sign languages and good for people who is interested in sign language like me..
I really liked the illustrations and explanations in this ASL dictionary. The only disheartening characteristic of this dictionary is that the latest edition is 13-years-old. I think a new edition would get a full 5 stars.

You should already know what this book is about. It's a very informational book. I learned lots of sign language. And it can get very hard to remember all of it.

I have tried to learn sign language from this book since my cousin can't hear. That's when texting comes in handy.
The Silence
It was very informative, although some illustrations and wordings were not clear, it was good overall
A good sign language dictionary--which I believe to be a requirement for anyone who signs.

I use this mostly as a reference book to teach my grandson sign language. It is a quick reference.
This is a great reference book for ASL. It shows the signs in a very clear manner.
Very easy-to-use and concise. Super handy resource!
