Description

***Please contact me directly for orders of 4 books or more.***

My advice and experiences with living with a stutter in a book I self-published containing my hand drawn original comics.

The book is 5.5" x 7.5", 70 pages, black and white, matte cover. Suitable for ages 10 and up. Please note that this book is not a children's book. It is written to cover a wide variety of life stages from speaking to family and friends, dating, job interviews, etc.

From the back cover:
"Stuttering (also known as stammering, in some parts of the world) can feel awkward for the speaker, and people who stutter often feel that it is easier just to keep quiet and avoid social situations altogether, becoming more covert with their stuttering. As a person who has stuttered since the age of three, cartoonist and podcaster Daniele Rossi shares his own experiences and methods for breaking out of the covert shell and becoming a person who stutters openly and confidently in all speaking situations, including giving presentations, dating, job interviews, and even dealing with those pesky, smirking waiters. All of these situations and more are beautifully illustrated in this quirky, fun, and informative book, an unparalleled resource for people who stutter of all ages!"

My book is also used as a textbook or learning at at 7 universities across North America.

Reviews (full disclosure: I know some of these people from the stuttering community):

"I also stutter and I LOVED your book :) Thanks to you, now I tell so many people that I stutter and, most of the time, I get beautiful reactions."
Geneviève, Canada

“Daniele Rossi your book is epic. A class all its own! We all love it and already inspiring a 15yo to find himself and find his voice through your colorful cartoons, expressive page numbers and fabulous content! BRAVO. Well worth the wait. Wonderful fruit of you long labor!”
Uri, speech language pathologist, USA

“I have started reading your book. LOVE IT!”
Kim, Canada

“Hey there. I just finished reading your book, and I wanted to say that you done something remarkable. The book is really good, and interesting. You should be really happy with and proud of yourself… Thanks again. It's a great book. Can't wait for the film version”
Hanan, Israel

“A humorous and light-hearted book with general information and personal observations, Stuttering is Cool is the perfect antidote to the emotional downturns that can leave so many people who stutter feeling disheartened. Daniele Rossi provides helpful advice along with a few smiles and laughs for people who stutter as they navigate an aggressive, fast-paced world.”

“After reading this handy pocket book, the first describing words coming to my mind are: positive, uplifting, personal, funny, straight forward. And did I say positive?… This highly recommendable book is a book for people who stutter who think life sucks. For those who want to learn more about stuttering. For those who have accepted their stutter and want a good laugh…
I shed tears of laughter and emotions. And the more I read, the more I enjoyed it.”

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept whichever payment forms Etsy takes. Please contact me directly for orders of 4 copies or more as Etsy miscalculates shipping on these kinds of orders. Plus, I offer a bulk discount for 10+ copies :)

Returns & exchanges

No refunds on books. I do a quality check on all books before I ship them and guarantee they are in tip top shape and mint condition. I try my best at keeping my stuff as safe and secure as possible when I package them for shipping. Contact me if your stuff arrives damaged.

If you live in a country where mail gets stolen regularly (such as Mexico and countries in Africa), please contact me first before placing your order as we'll need to arrange shipping by courier. Alternatively, you can safely order the digital version of my book on the Google Play Store and Apple iBooks Store.

Shipping policies

***Please contact me directly for orders of 4 books or more.***

I ship orders within 1-3 business days using Canada Post. Orders can take between 1-2 weeks (or more) depending on your location. To keep shipping prices down, I post by "regular mail" which does not include a tracking number. If you want a tracking number, contact me BEFORE you place your order.

Please note that there may be delays with customs and you may be charge duties and taxes after receiving my stuff. This is beyond my control and has everything to do with your government :) I will keep in regular contact with you if you experience any problems.

Additional policies

As I've mentioned above, please contact me directly for orders of 4 copies or more as Etsy miscalculates shipping on these kinds of orders. Plus, I offer a bulk discount for 10+ copies.
