The brain is a complex organ, and learning about it can be hard. Minds and Signs by Rebecca Rose Orton can help you to learn a lot more about the mind. This book will teach you what your own brain is doing almost every time you think of a word (such as "chair"), how your mind classifies things, and more. Pictures accompany the information in this book. If all of this sounds interesting to you, be sure to read Minds and Signs.

As once said by Ken Glickman , "Signs are to eyes what words are to ears ."

Minds and Signs written by Rebecca Rose Orton helps you understand about how your mind really works, how it tends to categorizes things in different ways, and also shows descriptions of various ways that the mind accomplishes this task.  Take for example how you think of a chair.  The chair has four legs, two arm rests, and a back rest. Then you think of variations that take it farther away from the prototype.

As once said by Eckhart Tolle , All problems are illusions of the mind. Minds and Signs written by Rebecca Rose Orton helps you understand about how your mind really works. It also tells you about the American Sign Language (ASL). This book provides many examples to help you to understand the theory quite easily. I would give this book 4/5 stars and would recommend this book to ages 10 – 14 . Hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I did
