After I finished this book I cried - well I cried all through it. Someone finally understood what it takes for me to learn. This book is well loved and referenced often.

One of my friends recommended Smart But Feeling Dumb to me. It provides me with understanding of the world dyslexics are in and enables me to help my friends with dyslexia.
