Publisher's Summary

Dyslexia has been described as a difficulty in processing information which may be linked to deficiencies in short-term memory and visual coordination. It is an inherent weakness in short-term memory that is either auditory or visual, which can make it extremely difficult for that person to learn and understand the relation between symbols and spoken sounds. This difficulty allows the person to be unable to correctly speak the correct flow of auditory sounds needed to make a word or sentence sound proper.

The range and severity of the problem of adult dyslexia varies widely between dyslexic people. The main areas of difficulty that occur most often are reading, writing, spelling, numeric, personal organization, and time-keeping. However, the degree to which individuals may be affected ranges from mild spelling difficulties to severe organizational problems or complete illiteracy. In all reality there really is no such thing as a typical case of dyslexia. In some cases, people with dyslexia are unaware that they suffer from such a problem whereas others haven't had a confirmed diagnosis until adulthood.

Adult dyslexia is difficult to recognize and identify as it's a problem that many people either don't realize they have or they try to hide it. Simple tasks that a person with dyslexia may try to perform may become increasingly more difficult, such as taking down a message, which can lead to frustration and anxiety.

Excellent Tips and Tricks!

An Interesting audible. I’ve heard a lot of these tips through the years, but never associated them with dyslexia. I now have a conscious awareness of them and I’m grateful that the author shed some light regarding the subject. Bravo... this is a concise, got to the point overview which helped me immensely and has instilled a higher confidence in my individual thinking. I have always known intuitively that I think and operate differently than others in my personal and professional life.

Some good tips to think about.

Some ideas to get thinking of how best to handle and live well with Dyslexia.

I felt the narrator's voice was distracting, too raspy which wasn't good for me.

Worthless

This book seems like the author just copy pasted a bunch of stuff from the internet, it offers no real insight at all. It looks like the author has no expertise or experience with dyslexia, and just made the most curiosity research.
