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)

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.

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!

Good thoughts terrible audio
The story line is interesting and appealing but the audio quality is awful and references pages throughout the recording for reference.
