Product description

Review

This is a timely book that is as important as it is unusual. The 'problems' of people with Down syndrome are often discussed - less so those of the world they find themselves in. Political decisions that profoundly affect (or even prematurely end) the lives of people with Down syndrome are taken by policymakers with little knowledge of the condition and almost always without asking people with Down syndrome what they think. This book highlights many of the prejudices behind these decisions, and many of their consequences. In so doing, it provokes a debate that is urgently needed - one that is not just about Down syndrome but about human differences, human diversity and the defence of individual human rights. --(Frank Buckley, CEO Down Syndrome Education International)

Fascinating - at last a concise, well written examination of Down's syndrome which not only presents a historical perspective and political analysis but has the added advantage of deriving from personal experience. --(Andy Merriman, Writer and broadcaster, co-author of BBC Radio 4 drama 'Minor Adjustment')

About the Author

Kieron is father to Tanzie (aged 5, who happens to have Down syndrome) and was recently involved in the 'incident' with so called comedian Frankie Boyle. He is MD of The Book Depository, the UK's largest specialist online bookshop.
