Top Customer Reviews

By Kim Dority on June 8, 2009
Format: Paperback
DisabilityLand is a slim book of stunning beauty and simple, elegantly powerful prose that captures in brief moments and vignettes the essence of what it means to live life with a disability.

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."

Format: Paperback
DisabilityLand is the latest book from Alan Brightman and it is a treasure of insights into the `experiences of disability' - what it is like to live in `disability land'. His anecdotes are collected from disabled children, adults, parents, educators, and his own experiences as an advocate and leader. The book is full of great observations about the assumptions we make as to what it means to be disabled. He manages to challenge us and at the same time leave us inspired to do the right thing - to be enablers. I encourage you to read it - this is the sort of book that can have a profound influence on your thinking and also give you hope for how things could be.
