Sign Language Made Simple

American Sign Language has gained popularity over the last few years. It is taught in schools and colleges all over the country. Sign Language Made Simple provides beginners of ASL a basic introduction to sign language. Part I  is an introduction to what sign Part II  is about the elements of a sign including which hand to use and the fingerspell alphabet .  Part III is  includes using non manual markers, compound signs, gender, and  initialized signs.  The dictionary that features over 1500 signs in different categories which helps the reader find signs easily and when to use finger spelling. Unlike other books in the subject, Sign Language Made Simple illustrates the sign in relation to the body. I didn't find much use for the chapter on humor but otherwise it is good for beginners.
