by Blue Ink Review
His stories of how he communicated using what he calls his “deaf-sight” really set this work apart from other memoirs, as it explores the nuances of human connection.
by Kirkus reviews
This book is fascinating and refreshing. An unusual upbringing brought Mark a rich perspective and references, that challenged the clique points of view of our society.Mark’s experience and therefore observations of different cultures Add to his understanding of human behavior, that together with psychoanalysis and the wisdom extracted from old sacred texts, delivers a beautiful message.
