Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Praise for the previous edition:

A meditation on the wonders of language. . . . Susan Schaller's book is a tantalizing glimpse into unexplored territory. . . . Virtually nothing has been written about adults without language, but Ms. Schaller makes it clear that their numbers are greater than we think.

Lou Ann Walker, New York Times Book Review

This poignant, astonishing, exciting case history touches on many linguistic, philosophic, and educational matters and raises questions not only about teaching the deaf but about the ways people learn.

Publishers Weekly

Her passionate, powerful book is both eloquent and elegant.

Andrea Barrett, Washington Post Book World

At the level of sheer pleasure in reading, /i/A Man without Words//i/ is as gripping as a novel, eliciting great sympathy for both protagonist and author. . . . The question that drives it--what is it like to be without language?--should be of interest to any reflective person, and it is one of the great scientific questions of all time.

Steven Pinker, author of The Language Instinct
