really liked it
Recommended for: Anyone who has ever had a question about a deaf person....
Read in October, 2008

This book is great... Each chapter is an independent question that has actually been asked of the authors, by a well meaning hearing person, and most of these questions I have wondered myself! Some are a little absurd, such as "Is braille the written form of ASL?". But mostly they are very good questions. I have found it a good conversation starter and I run around asking my deaf friends if they agree and if they have had similar experiences. I'm going to buy a copy and send it to my parents! I think this book should be recommended reading for all people working in the public service industry! :o)

Linda There is no such question in the book; the question is actually worded as "Is there any similarity between Braille and ASL?"
