Book Reviews & Testimonials

This is a fictional book, but it is based on true events and all the historical and factual information is correct.
The story itself is a very entertaining read, and mixed with the factual information, makes a gripping story that I couldn’t put down.
I do find it so sad though, that deaf education has not changed in far too many years and deaf children are still missing out due to mainly ignorance and misleading untruths.
Definitely worth a read, get it now, you won’t be disappointed.
A. Beckles
A must have and a must read. First time read his book will definitely buy his other book in the near future.
Yasmin Jacobsen
A very inspiring book, telling her story so far, of bringing up 2 deaf boys, Cameron and Campbell. She tells of the heartache of discovering that not one but both her boys were deaf, their early childhood and how it has affected her and the people around her, and how her life has changed over those years.
We hear of her ongoing life, and how she deals with situations day on day.
A recommended read for all!
Keep on Dancing Tamsin!
Col Rees
This was a well written and insightful book. Lots of information for parents of children with similar problems. Tamsin’s account of the highs and lows would give hope to other families.
Rosemary Kirkwood
Very informative and honest book with a good balance of fact and everyday humour. Great for inspiring parents of children with additional needs and even those without. The book flows well and is an easy read.
Ms. A. Cartwright
I have already read half way through Stuart Harrison’s excellent book, so absorbing with an opportunity to know more of what was actually going on between CISS/ICSD and IPC and IOC even up to now, reflecting a real need to create a breed of new young deaf leaders/trainers otherwise going back to square one!
