"Talking Hands" by Margalit Fox
I'm reading it now. Very very interesting.

It's about sign language in general, and the Bedouin Al-Sayyid Sign Language spoken in one remote village in Israel, due to a high level of congenital deafness there.

Here's a link to the website for the book - I highly recommend it if you're interested in languages and linguistics.
