    Monolinguistic oppression, eugenics, the horrible state of deaf education in this country, coupled with what I already knew and the completely lopsided information we received from the medical people when we found out John was severely hard of hearing and this book made me angry, determined and then damn determined that John will know and grow and learn and enjoy both Deaf culture, his beautiful language of ASL and learn English too If you ever wondered why the Deaf are one of the least churched [...]

    I have very mixed feelings about this book It was jam packed with information, and I think Lane does a phenomenal job of covering all of the issues facing the Deaf community today That being said, I do not think this is a successful book for those who have no prior knowledge of Deaf history and issues Lane is very harsh on the hearing world, to the point that I think he risks alienating his hearing audience and making them defensive and thus non receptive to the ideas he s presenting As a studen [...]

    I read this book as part of an ASL class in college First published in 1992 and therefore I m sure dated in its approach to the issues it tackles , it is meticulously researched, well organized, logical, and passionate in its defense of ASL as an oppressed language minority.One could certainly argue that Dr Lane short changes his opponents by not really addressing their arguments on the benefits of mainstreaming Deaf children, but the purpose of this book is not to present both sides of the issu [...]

    After reading this, I felt two things 1 this wasn t really telling me anything new as a Deaf person2 wow really anti hearing people perspective.I think this would be an okay book to read if you re new to the Deaf world and aren t sure why things should be different However, as someone already affiliated with it, I m not feeling too hot about this book.

    Life changing, eye opener Compelling Read it twice, appreciated it even the second time around One of my favorite books by one of my favorite authors My only regret is that I didn t read it sooner For further exploration I recommend Dr Lane s other books, notably, When the Mind Hears.

    THis is an amazing book that really helps to give you a great perspective on what it must be like to be deaf, and how normal people would treat you It is a great look into Cochelear Implants and how they are detrimental to some, and helpful to others I think that everyone should read this book.

    I read the older 1992 edition It s very helpful read for people who don t realise that the Deaf have a very different centre for their values, experiences and expectations from hearing people So many sincere hearing people with good intentions actually make it worse because they re using a different centre imposing their own cultural values and perspectives onto Deaf people.

    Just as good as last time An evocative look at the underpinnings of what it means to be culturally or big D Deaf, discrimination and oppression from the larger hearing majority under the guise of benevolence, and a validation of Deaf culture Can t wait to discuss this with my advanced level sign students.

    Clear and concise Very interesting Brings to your attention what sounds like madness but has actually gone on and is going on in the deaf culture and community.Taught a 1 and a half hour presentation in sign on chapter 2.

    Despite its academic style that may be difficult for some people but I am educated to understand this and it is well written and researched Very powerful with an impact for both Deafs and hearings alike Don t be afraid to read it again and again to truly understand this eye opening book

    James
    A good book that helps to disgrace and or lay it straight about people who think they are helping the deaf when in fact they are hurting the people they are supposed to serve.

    Annette
    The book was slightly biased with things not explained fully, but it does give great light to the plight of the Deaf.

    Christina Lewis
    Dry and boring writing, very one sided, and a little hypocritical There are way better Deaf culture books out there I wouldn t want to read another Harlan Lane book again if I didn t have to.

    Stefany Boleyn
    Read for a linguistics class Really interesting look into the history of Deaf culture in the US.

    Another fantastic one by Lane, lays it out for you, no prisoners, no whitewashing Makes you think and realize Not as easy a read as When the Mind Hears, less story, but still great.

    This book changed my life and helped me gain a Deaf capital D identity I m no longer a bitter, jaundiced dude, thanks to this gem

    Gaile
    The hearing might find this one to be full of surprises.

    Allison
    very informational i liked it

    Sarah Jones
    On of the best books for insight into the Deaf Community I bought this book for a college course, but I kept it rather than selling it back to the bookstore It is a fantastic read.

    Bob
