Interesting little book Sept. 10 2011
By James D. Crabtree - Published on
Format: Paperback
This humor book is filled with gestures from around the world... sure to insult, entice or just aggravate others without even knowing the language. The book has photos of models illustrating the gestures, along with a written description of each and the rational behind each. Funny and rude at once it is a good introduction to the most common form of sign language.

Very funny for what I needed it for, but a little small and questionable March 13 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this book for my roommate for Christmas after I found out that she had taken a sign language class. I think that it was a good gift, though the book was pretty tiny and some of the signs shown are just so out there that I question if they are actually valid signs
