Talking Hands: What Sign Language Reveals About the Mind (英语) 平装 – 2008年8月5日
"This is a captivating and important book, minutely researched and vividly narrated, about an isolated Bedouin village where hearing and deaf people alike communicate in sign language. Such situations are increasingly rare and precious. Fox's book will be fascinating to anyone interested in the nature of human language or indeed in cognitive neuroscience."
-- Oliver Sacks, M.D.

I personally found many things totally fascinating, and marked half a dozen pages for reference. But when I tried to share my excitement with others who had no interest in linguistics, I couldn't interest them. Sign language interpreters love it!
Stop reading this review and just order yourself a copy. You'll be glad you did. If you can put it down, you have more willpower than me. Great job.
On a personal level it amazes me to see how versatile humans are. Even without sound we can create language.
