    After English and Spanish, it is the third most common language in North America. Over 22 million people use it to communicate. It has its own beauty, its own unmistakable form, and its own inherent culture. It is American Sign Language (ASL), the language of the deaf.

    Gabriel Grayson has put together a book that makes signing accessible, easy, and fun. Using almost 1,400 photographs, he has created a comprehensive primer to the techniques, words,

    and phrases of signing. Each word or phrase is accompanied by a photo or series of photos that show hand and body motions and facial expressions. Along with the images are step-by-step instructions for forming the sign, as well as a helpful “Visualize” tip that connects the sign with its meaning for easier recall.

    After examining the fascinating history and nature of both sign language and the deaf community, Talking With Your Hands explains signing basics, covering such topics as handshapes, fingerspelling, signing etiquette, and more. The remaining chapters provide over 1,700 words and phrases. Throughout the book, informative insets focus on fascinating aspects of deaf history, deaf culture, and significant deaf personalities.

      This book is an excellent book for anyone who wants to learn sign language or would like to teach others. I work with individuals who are deaf and it is helping me be a better person. I am learning to communicate to them and I feel it enriches them to know I care enough about them. I highly recommend this book the sisgns and the descriptions are very helpful.

      I know a lot of ASL signs can be regional... and I am certainly no expert when it comes to ASL because I am just learning the language... but I found that this book seemed to contain more signed English than I would have liked. I still use it as a reference for some signs, but the Deaf in my area use a lot of signs that differ from the ones depicted in this book. On the plus side, the book is organized very well. And the descriptions of the signs are very thorough. They're just different from what I've learned locally.
