Need to read
If they are like me or want to understand me better they need to read it
Not the best movie but a must watch any way
The writing style is dull as is the reading. It is not for the dyslexic reader as it seems to be written in dull uncreative jargon from a non-dyslexic writer. It needs to be more concise with less introduction and less repetition of the word dyslexic. The use of little personal stories is very formulaic. I usually don't get bothered by gender issues, but most of the little stories are about successful men.... ad nauseum. The successes of the women felt less important.
I bogged down and didn't finish the book.
fiction or history
He was as dull as the writer.
Too many to list, but the word "dyslexic" was over used in the introduction and felt like a hammer pounding away. It sounded like a formulaic self-help book from the 1990's. Perhaps a creative dyslexic who can actually write needs to write a book on the subject. It needs to be clear and not concentrate on little personal stories.
First paragraph... "If you're an entrepreneur you're five times more likely to be Dyslexic." Fascinating book, if you teach, especially primary or secondary education, this is certainly worth reading.
You should save your money or credits and pick this book up at your local library. Sometimes a book is better read than listened to. This may be an example of that. From very early in the book I had the urge to fast forward, perhaps because it was so repetitive, or perhaps because the narrator droned the intire reading. Or at least he droned what I could stand to listen to, less than half the book. I'm not sure, but this book may have been more interesting if the authors had used fewer examples of dyslexic people and spent the time to flesh them out as characters that could have been more interesting. Oh yeah, and tell the narrator not to sound like he was reading from a junior college textbook.
Worthwhile but repetitive
As noted in the book we dyslexics like stories and story telling and often do better with an oral presentation of material
I would not make a film of this book or a documentary film either
