    The Sample

    The sample gives you no idea of the format of the book. I wouldn't buy this book until the sample is more informative.

    This is actually a good book, but the preview is absolutely useless.

    This is actually a good book to practise putting signs together. Too bad that the preview is completely void of content. Anyone that likes to try before they buy will immediately be turned away.

    I saw the sample since I'm a member and they since very good and easy to understand. I think it suites better for beginners. I'm considering to buy it after looking at the samples. Hope this helps those who said they couldn't see the sample.

    Wont waist my money on a book I cant sample

    I agree with the other reviews- there is no content in the sample, how do I know if I'm interested in the book? In an actual book store I could at least skim through and decide if I could understand the illustrations and how they teach the ASL. Can someone who's actually read the book give a review?
