Customer Review

2 September 2013
We hear much about the need to change the perceptions society holds about disabled people, but less about the perceptions disabled people hold about themselves. Why Are You Pretending To Be Normal? explores some of these perceptions in a way which is easy to follow. I recommend this book to everyone regardless of disability, but I particularly recommend it to people who have an acquired impairment. I spend much of my time communicating these themes to people who live with a disability and I am now glad to have a book version to recommend to those I work with.

By reframing how everyone, disabled or non-disabled, sees disability this book has the potential to be empowering and enlightening to disabled people and those personally or professionally close to them.
