    Not What I Was Looking For

    I was rather dissapointed when I purchased this book. I was hoping for many examples............ but I am now around page 35 and have seen 4 or 5 examples. If you are hoping to learn several words in sign language, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?
