Interviewing Joe Biden about his stuttering was just the start to this own author’s catharsis as he faced his own fears about stuttering. John Hendrickson, senior editor at The Atlantic, wrote this book detailing the isolation, depression, bullying and substance abuse that he struggled with as an individual who stutters.

Check out ‘Life on Delay: Making Peace With a Stutter’ and more in our latest edition of Monthly Recommendations!

1. Not Without Us: Perspectives on disability and inclusion in Singapore

How do we talk more about ‘disability’? As we move towards the era of big data, can we truly call ourselves smart and connected if we cannot even understand our neighbor? ‘Not Without Us’ is an exploration of societal issues and an invitation to look deeper into the disability landscape of ‘inclusive’ cities.

2. I Didn’t See You There

We look, but do we truly see? ‘I Didn’t See You There’ is a riveting experiential documentary on life as a person with cerebral palsy. Protagonist and film-maker Reid Davenport gives us a first-hand perspective of the challenges wheelchair-users face and hopes to bring more awareness to this condition.

3. Life on Delay: Making Peace with a Stutter

John Hendrickson takes readers into his world as a stutterer in this newly-released memoir. It covers his experience with bullying, substance abuse, depression, feelings of isolation, and other issues stutterers face.

4. It’s Good To Walk
