Part 2 extensively looks at sign as a distinct language with its own syntax and grammar.
Part 3 is an excellent synopsis of the 1988 uprising at Gallaudet University over the selection of a new president.
This book offers a fascinating overview of deaf culture by a talented writer.
One of the greatest features of Olives Sacks' writing is the highly sophisticated and literary style that he employs. I would love reading his books even if he were describing the content of a box of cereal. We are fortunate that his writing brilliance is matched with the vast knowledge and expertise that he has in neuroscience. It is this incredible combination of writing and scientific talent that makes each of his books a masterpiece.
