Employee Review

This is a good book for complete beginners. I wanted to be able to communicate with a deaf co-worker, so I needed something really basic. I discovered, however, that this book is a little too basic. Almost immediately, I wanted to know how to sign some things that weren't included here. But this volume is handy because it is a small size -- and there are over 600 signs included.
