Talk about The American Sign Language Phrase Book

☆☆☆☆☆ Five stars! This is a really awesome reference book. It explains all of the arrows and movements that you make with a sign, so you know which direction to go, or if you wiggle your fingers, or shake your wrist. There are a lot of useful vocabulary words, and also phrases. The chapters are seperated into different categories. And even though the illustrations aren't fancy, (I dunno what's going on with this guys hair and ears) they definitely do the trick. I would recommend buying this book if you are a beginner, or have been signing awhile. It's a really good investment.
I've been learning ASL for years and yet could never find a book that talked about grammar for more than a few pages. Given how complicated ASL grammar is, this was not very helpful and I struggled with proficiency in ASL grammar long past the time when I had gained a large vocabulary. I bought this book the second I saw it, and was not disappointed! Every page has several sentences, covering any topic imaginable, from restaurants to airports to daily conversation, and from simple to complex sentences. They provide explanations as well as dozens of examples for each rule, and every sentence is illustrated with a sign for every word. Overall, a great book for a signer of any level.
I have a 3 year old hearing impaired great grand daughter and have been having problems finding a learning tool that was educational and easy to understand. his book is amazing! It gives you easily understood signs and explanations that help you learn faster than any others I have bought. My grand daughter had me buy 3 more to give to family members. She showed it to Ali's hearing and speech teacher who also asked for a copy.
This is a good book to use as a tool when learning ASL. I would not recommend it as a stand alone learning tool, but combined with other products, this book could significantly help you in learning and understanding the basics of communication in American Sign Language.
I bought the e-book but would have rathered the paper book. The e-book illustrations do not match up with descriptions...very frustrating.
My husband has a severe hearing loss, and while we don't need to communicate exclusively in ASL, it really helps. I've looked at several books, but Fant's book is best. For one thing, it explains ASL grammar, and talks about how language is not about "words" but the "expression of ideas". Personally, we find this very helpful. Before reading this, I was under the expression that I needed to translate word-for-word into ASL.
I'm sure if you're reading this review that you know that Lou Fant was the hearing child of two deaf parents. His knowledge and fluency of ASL have been used in many films and in other formats. Fant does a good job of explaining that some words are very localized in their use and translation. He points out which words you should really check out locally for appropriate translation.
I also really liked how Fant goes over some of the etiquette of using ASL. I did not know that it's considered polite to have the hearing impaired or deaf person to give permission to use the special name sign an individual uses. Little details like this are very important to know.
Finally, our family has found other advantages to learning ASL. For instance, when one is in a crowd, it is easy to communicate without shouting. Likewise in a crowded room, you can literally talk to someone on the other side of the room.
This book was recommended to me by my ASL tutor, and not without good reason! The drawings inside are easy to understand and emulate (they also include facial expressions and body language) and the sentences provide a great example of ASL grammar. Some signs inside are SEE-sign, so it is important to use this book alongside a native signer of ASL or a teacher. However, this book is better than any ASL textbooks for beginners that I have encountered.
I got this book on a whim back when I studied ASL. Frankly, I expected to be disappointed. After all, how many times have you picked up a foreign language phrase book and found it to be mostly useless rubbish? ("My hovercraft is full of eels!" -- John Cleese)

This book is a delight. Instead of just being a book of phrases or a collection signs, it's actually an ASL grammar in very active form. You get to see how phrases are concocted in normal settings. You get a feel for how the signs should flow together rather than being disjoint symbols. In short, this is the best book on how ASL actually works.

I was tempted, as with another signing book, to give this 4-stars because I think book format for signing is outdated. However, the method of presentation of ASL found in this book surpasses much of what I've seen since, so I'm giving it the best rating possible.
