Roy Holcomb and his two sons give students an entertaining glimpse of life in the Deaf community that every reader will relate to. This all-time favourite is now expanded with sections on Classic Humour, Our Unique Ways, New Technology, New Hazards (Telephone Relay Services, decoders, and TTYs), Bathroom Tales, Classic Hazards, in addition to Travel and Transportation, Dining Out, Deaf Consumers, Misunderstandings, Communicating, Myths, Mainstreaming and more. Perfect supplemental reading for Deaf Studies programs as well as English classes for Deaf students. Dead Culture, Our Way also stands alone as an excellent collection of enjoyable anecdotes for both Deaf and hearing people alike.
