It's organized into three parts: Common Sense (as in, how different these stories would be if common sense had been present); Learnings (the things we learn about and from disability - and about ourselves, if we're paying attention); and Leaps (people finding ways to be smart about using what we're learning to change the game - or the world). Pages of stunning artwork created by students from the National Institute of Art and Disabilities (NIAD) enrich the prose, as do wonderful quotations scattered throughout.
Consider DisabilityLand a reality check, a message of hope, a blast of truth-telling in the midst of unspoken and damaging misconceptions about disability. A great read whether you're a person with a disability or currently among the "temporarily abled."
