A lighthearted look at the inside-out world of left-handedness, seeking to prove what left-handers have always suspected - they are not only different from everybody else, they are better. Drawing on NASA statistics and neurological surgical research, the book makes its points with sly good humour.

Apologies, this arrived last week and I thought I'd already journaled it. An enjoyable book with some interesting facts... my brother and I are both left handers, with two right handed parents and no known left handers on either side. There's a Scots word for it as well - 'caurie-fistit', with various variations in spelling and pronuciation.

Will pm the next reader and get it on its way asap.

I couldn't help but read this the minute I opened the package up when I got home last night. This was an excellent book. It should be required reading in all elementary schools! I laughed and laughed and laughed while I read this and shared bits and pieces of it with friends. Truly an amazing book.

Am pm-ing for next address and will get off in mail soon.

A million and seven apologies for holding onto this so long. I took it to work with me one day to show a left-handed colleague and someone else asked if they could borrow it for the night. Unfortunately "night" turned into "month". But I've got it back now and I'm taking it to the post office this very minute.

What a silly-fun book! My personal weirdest experience as a left-hander was when I assisted my right-handed-3-year-old daughter to put on her belt. I threaded it through her belt loops and buckled it up, next thing I know, she squawks at me, takes the belt off and re-threads it through her belt loops going the other way. Guess mommy doesn't always know best after all.

It was also weird going through nursing school, learning clinical techniques from right-handed instructors. Setting up an IV is stressful enough as it is. But when you're trying to translate right-handed moves into left-handed ones in front of a patient who knows they are at your mercy, that's total klutz time. Especially when your instructor doesn't comprehend that there's a difference.

Personally, I always blamed the fact that I suck at aiming sports (ie: archery, bowling, darts) on being left-handed.

What a laugh!

Finished this quickly. It was cute, but didn't contain much information I hadn't come across before. I'll post this after returning from Christmas holiday.

My husband and father are both "confused" lefties, they were made to do some things right handed, but others feel more natural with the left. They aren't ambidextrous, can't choose, but can't seem to stick with one side or the other.

I guess the toughest thing for me, as a very dedicated leftie, is that I am right-eyed due to a very extreme left lazy eye. For sportsman, you should know that since I am right eyed, my aim is terrible if I use my left hand. I finally, reluctantly, gave in to using my right hand for archery and riflery (scary!) and found that now I am a much better shot.

Thanks for sharing!

By the way, the book featured in one of the illustrations in this book is "Sinister People" by Jack Fincher, the book I have a bookray for.... It's still not to late to join! A bit heavier reading, but very enjoyable.
