Comments so far:
"After two chapters, I know I am going to learn more about ICSD and the Deaflympics than I have in the last 20 years!"
" What a good read. I can't stop reading this book!"
" I am sure I will be taking notes throughout reading your book but I have already decided that as part of my disability course next year my students have to make a statement to raise awareness about disability."
"Good book!, It tells us that explaining deafness & the Deaflympics globally and nationally must be a priority."
"The book makes you think about things, for example, I would prefer that ICSD explores a partnership with the IPC rather than membership."
"More people should read this book as not only is it promoting the deaf sports it is waking up society to the rough ordeal that deaf world has to face each day."
