Community recommendation from Louis A:
Some books open your eyes to things you hadn’t seen before and make you wonder how you could have been so blind. Some books teach you new things. Some books make you feel good. Mona’s book does all three. Like many people, I had never paid attention to people who stutter. I never thought of what life must be like for them, their embarrassment, humiliation, alienation, struggles, and their great accomplishments. The first thing I experienced in this book was a sense of how stutterers struggle with their affliction and overcome it in truly valiant ways. The second thing I experienced was an acute awareness of my insensitivity to my fellow man. It taught me about life as a stutterer. It was so moving to experience that life through the authors' pens. And lastly, I came away feeling good. Feeling glad I had read the book. I recommend you do the same. It might change you in some ways like it did me.
