5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By James D. Crabtree VINE VOICE on September 10, 2011
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.

A great teaching aid as I am now able to communicate clearly with all of my neighbors and fellow commuters in the richly diverse areas of my city.

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

This book is short and very pictographic (as intended). I found it a fun read and often share it around to colleagues and friends looking for a laugh. I tend to leave it in public areas at work or home to encourage new readership.

I don't think you'll regret the purchase. I sure haven't.
