Great news! My book, The Illustrated Guide to Assistive Technology and Devices, is now the bestselling book on Amazon’s Assistive Technology List.
My publisher, Demos Health, calls the book a primer on assistive tech that cuts through the clutter surrounding assistive devices with a simple conversational style. It’s organized according to disability and easily explains the best type of device for a multiple situations, home, work, on the road, or at school.
In a press release today, Demos says “this book has been universally praised by everyone from David Ditker, Executive Director of the Assistive Technology Industry Association who said it “… should be on the Top Ten list of anyone interested in Assistive Technology products” to Frances West, with the IBM Human Ability and Accessibility Center, who said the book “combines research and personal insight to help even the most novice user make better, more informed choices about assistive technology.”
In November, I’ll be appearing at the National Center for Technology Innovation’s 2010 Technology Innovators Conference, where I’ll will sign books and demonstrate some assistive technologies. The Tech Expo will be held at the Madison Hotel in Washington, D.C. on November 15 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and is open to the public. For more information see http://www.nationaltechcenter.org
