Most of the information in the book was interesting. It is a very in-depth look at the beginnings of Deaf education, Deaf culture, and the Deaf community in America. However, I would have appreciated a little bit about contemporary American Deaf culture and community, and how it evolved from the early days. I relied on the in-class discussions and my Deaf instructor's insight to tie all of that together. If you're interested in Deaf culture/community, and want to know the historical reasons why most Deaf are proud and protective of their language and schools, this book is a good read. If you're looking for information specific to contemporary Deaf culture, maybe not the book for you.
