    "Great Book - Bad Recording"

    The sound quality of this audio book is horrible. The book itself is fantastic, but the sound quality definetly leaves something to be desired.

    "Must Read!! Read This book NOW!"
    Where does The Gift of Dyslexia rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    If you are dyslexic or know someone that is this book could change your life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gift of Dyslexia?

    If you are dyslexic you, this book will help you understand that you are gifted. Which is probably completely the opposite of what your teachers and the school system has taught you.


    What three words best describe the narrators’s performance?

    The narration could be better.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a must read (or listen) if you are dyslexic or know someone that is. Ron Davis, a dyslexic himself, explains dyslexia and how you can learn to overcome reading difficulties.

    Davis explains that dyslexia is a gift and why some of the most famous and influential people (Einstein, Edison, da Vinci the list goes on and on) have been dyslexic. It is not a coincidence that these successful people were dyslexic, rather they were able to use their gift.

    After reading this book, you will understand dyslexia is truly gift!

    "must buy for dyslexia or parents of dyslexia child"

    this is a must buy if you want insight into how to overcome dyslexia. the reason i gave it 4 stars is because it is just read from the book, and says from time to time to read the side notes, or look at the chart, etc. well you dont have that so sometimes your just left wondering what iam missing. for that i would say buy the book and on kindle its much cheaper.

    "Not so rare survival story"

    A dyslexic man walked into a bra – though still, thinking quicker than a hand can write may not be a serious defect. Learning can be a very enticing activity if not made dull by a formal schooling system. The book reminded me my own adolescent years when quitted the school thinking that never again. However, a young man needed a profession so I later started studying in a technical college. Then, surprisingly, the former troublemaker turned out to be the best in the class – especially in mathematics, physics and mechanics. Now, after two engineering degrees and one postgraduate degree in technical mathematics, I can do nothing but wonder why on earth I could have missed so many years in my younger life. People are very different, and indeed, and excellent talents can get dismissed. The book is unquestionably worth of listening (or reading)
