    It was pretty good, not perfect. It explains some basics but more variety of examples would have been nice to help me understand the concepts. It has photos but it's hard to be clear on what's happening without videos. I mainly wanted to know the word order so I appreciated the glossing. It was pretty good, not perfect.

    While most ASL/DIS students go out and buy all of the dictionaries, they would be wise to also seek out Michelle Jay's book on grammar, since you cannot have one without the other! I have read this book for the third time since taking my first ASL course, and a refresher always helps! I am looking forward to seeking out her other work, both in the "Don't Just Sign...Communicate!" series and her published work in scholarly journals!

    This book was good, especially for me, a beginning signer. The pictures are hard to follow, so I had to buy an ASL dictionary with it. But, if you are looking to begin ASL and need a grammar book, I would recommend it.

    Good book for basics. I wanted more details about grammar, especially mouth movements.

    This isn't a bad little reference book, especially for beginning signers, though I'm not 100% on some of what she says in the book as being real accurate. And of course, videos (or real people!) are always better resources than any book. I was looking for something on ASL Grammar, and this book is OK, but not really what I was going for.

    Excellent intro to Deaf culture with tons of resources to learn more. Lots of significant events in Deaf history are covered. Just a really well-written book for beginning ASL learners.
