Absolutely BRILLIANT book. Not only are the illustrations funny, but so many of the anecdotes are true. A hearing person might read this and not understand some of the humour, but as a Deafie, I almost had my cup of tea spray out of my nose from laughing so hard. Great book!

This was a great look into some of the common and hopefully not so common experiences of the Deaf Community. My daughter and I are learning American Sign Language and hope to avoid saying or asking something that would embarrass ourselves if given the opportunity to chat with someone who is deaf or hearing impaired. This book gave us some definite “not-to” examples.
