I think you may be looking for "I'll Scream Later" by Marlee Matlin (ISBN 1439102856). I haven't read it yet but it looks to be an autobiography.

Hello and thanks for sharing these books. I'm going to have to see if I can get some for myself.

I have written books (both hard copies and e-books) but only one e-book that is related to Deaf and an essay (no longer online) that talks about discrimination in employment and about college education for Deaf people and minorities. It was more geared for broad perspective on people with Disabilities facing such discrimination in employment and how college is.

The e-book I was talking about is about my talents and skills and why can't employers hire me. I think that book has generated controversy. So was the essay. I do not need to name them because its easy for you to find my e-book.

Can you let us know the link(s) to the said ebook and essay? That'd be helpful.

Thanks.

It's very obvious that Illusionist is an easier career for a deaf man since illusionists rely on people not noticing what they are doing while they put on a distraction with their voice or with a presentation elsewhere (away from the hand that is hiding the other object). A deaf man can also begin to notice how an illusionisy is completing his illusions during the show, creating interest in the deaf man to become an illusionist himself because he feels intelligent that he was able to notice the performer's hidden actions easily.

However, if you meant "magician" instead of "illusionist", that is bigoted yet again, to claim that " more deaf people then you think are a magician". Deaf Is Not A Personality. It is extremely obvious that any deaf human being can be a member of or a believer in absolutely any religion that they want to be in or were brainwashed into, and there is absolutely nothing whatsoever about a deaf man being a witch\magicians\wizard, a priest in Voudon, an Orthodox Xtian, a shaman, an Azraelite, a Rastafarian, or any other religion.
don't read into it more than is there, a simple " you mean -meant " most people are not sensitive to the distinction, or least in past, now days :ugh: good grief:kiss:
