What People are Saying About This

Stutter is a sterling presentation of difficulties encountered by people who stutter. It demonstrates that stutterers are alone in their quest for normalcy, yet share a kinship with many other people, some who stutter and some who do not. Furthermore, the enigma of stuttering--questions as to why stuttering has existed throughout time, why persons who stutter don't stutter when they sing, the ridiculous therapeutic permutations they run through--all of this is well discussed. The book is not only easy to read, but fun.
