Left Handed all the way!
It was a quick read. Loved the little sketches found throughout the book(s). Its 4 books in one. Vintage. I would enjoy the same book if it was loaded with famous ppl that I am more familiar with. I shared some passages with my hubby (a righty) & he enjoyed them also.
Funny, innovative and informative. Gives those of us who were forced to be right handed a lot to think about. I still do a majority of things left handed to start with and then switch to right when other people notice.
Read it in one sitting! Lots of amusing information! I want to read it to my left handed son and husband! We right hander's have made it hard for our leftie friends. They can't play polo or saxophone!

Read this book in one day. I tell you what, I've gain so much respect for LeftHanders. My brother is one and growing up I thought he was special and he is special in a GREAT kind of way.

This was a really fun and witty book with some really interesting facts about left handed people.

Fantastic toilet read for anyone of the advanced dexterity. Fun, informative, and historical.

Definitely some dated theories on left-handedness, but amusing. Cute, quick read.
There was some very interesting information and perspective in this book. I was disappointed though because I was hoping it would offer some assistance. The 3rd section of the book implies it will be about and possibly provide some assistance for parents if kids who are left handed. It does no such thing. I don't even see why they called it Left-handed kids .
A small paragraph on every page with lots of pictures making this book a good quick read! Enjoyed learning about celebrities who are left handed and qualities that make up left handed people! Overall it repeated a lot of the same facts over and over which became a drag.

Multiple books rolled into one I enjoyed hearing all of the history and idiosyncrasies common to left handed people like myself. It was fun and entertaining but it is not structured like a novel but more like a 'gift book.'

A bit of fun that makes you think about all the right-handedness that you take for granted (no wonder I'm so clumsy!) It also, crucially and frequently, reminds you of the endless advantages of being a left-hander ^_^

This has four books in one and I enjoyed The Left-Handed Book and The Natural Superiority of The Left-Hander the most. Great for anyone who is left handed, and right minded :)

One of my favorite books! So many interesting facts and famous southpaws I never knew about. An inspiration to all those who rock their brain's right hemisphere!
My daughter and husband are left handed, so when we saw this at the store, we had to buy it. Really funny book. Quick read with some crazy facts for lefties.
Got it for a birthday gift it was excelent
