The authors write eloquently about their subject, “

Ed Hoffman is an ordinary man who happens to a deaf mute. In less than one hour after the assassination, Ed had communicated to his dentist, a few friends, his father, and his wife, the tragic events he had seen in Dealey Plaza. In order to communicate with others, Ed must rely on his use of hand-written notes, gestures and sign language. Ed communicates on a different level than those who have the ability to hear and speak.

We have prepared this book, not to convince the skeptics, but to provide meaningful documentation to the researcher and to the student of history. Our goal is report the facts, with documentation, and to offer some linguistic analysis of the problem of sign language transliteration. We invite the reader to examine the presented evidence in order to reach their own conclusions.”
