Publisher's Summary

Congratulations! You’ve already taken the first step by pursuing this book about dyslexia. Now, it’s time to learn more. And trust me, there is a lot to learn.

  • How it affects motor skills, hearing, and speech development
  • How the cerebral cortex, thalamus, and other brain regions differ in dyslexic people
  • What is the controversial debate about likelihood in girls versus boys
  • What are some mind-blowing education tips for those who work with dyslexic kids
  • How it varies from or coincides with dyscalculia
  • What are the best ways of interaction with those who have dyslexia
  • What are the secret benefits of dyslexia people don’t typically tell you about

Give it a go and learn more about this deviation in the brain many people don’t understand at all. Become one of the enlightened ones and become more familiar with the topic.

Informational

This is a very good book about dyslexic people. I personally know a family that suffers from dyslexia, and yes, it is definitely hereditary. But there are also hidden talents in that family, and you can tell, especially from the adults (not just the kids) that they think in a different way, not just that they're bad at spelling and reading. There is so much more to it, and this book made that clear.

Very nice

Books about dyslexia expose the truth about so many false concepts people have about the disorder, if you can call it that. Books like this make it all clear. I like that.

Bad production value

I'm not sure if the author is a child with dyslexia or if English is not her first language but I had trouble listening to it. the text and the audio recording would have benefited from some professional editing. That said, it's a fast way to get good information.

I wish I was really great at composing testimonials, but you'll just have to be pleased with this mediocre recommendation, namely, that the book was intriguing all the way through, up until the very end.

Very informative if you ask me

It's one of those rare books that tells you the full truth about dyslexia, not just the part of "can't spell or read very well." This book goes in depth in the brain structure of the dyslexics. It's very good. Thank you. Good narrator.
