If I wait to write complete reviews of books before recommending them to you, I might never do it.
Let’s get going!
Seeing Voices by Oliver Sacks.
Reviews on epinions.com.
This book is a great introduction to the world of the deaf. It explores in depth the characteristics of Sign as a language, and its influence on the mind and development of those who use it.
A word of warning, however: you might find yourself taking up classes to learn Sign by the end of the book!
