Description

A beautifully designed book (packed with photos) full of wise words and encouragement from successful dyslexics working in comedy, architecture, law, fashion and many other amazing (and achievable!) careers.

Honest about the challenges of dyslexia (like problems or embarrassment at school), while showing how its strengths can be used to your advantage (for example how visualising and big picture thinking can make you shine at work), this is a book of colourful conversations with creative, motivated and successful people who are brilliant at what they do, and who achieve incredible things because of their dyslexia. There is also a section from people working to support people with dyslexia, who have researched the subject or work directly helping dyslexics on a day to day basis, who they share their top tips and advice gleaned from their years of experience.

Read on to gain encouragement and inspiration in your own careers!

Reviews

'What's wonderful about this book is that it shows dyslexia from a range of personal perspectives. Dyslexia is not a generic experience -- it's as unique as the people who live with it on a daily basis. With this book Kathy and Kate have shown us how the perception of dyslexia has changed over time, and how those dealing with it have grown to see dyslexia as a strength rather than a weakness impacting on education. An inspiring read!'
- Kenny Wheeler, Senior Consultant Teacher at Driver Youth Trust

'Inspiring, insightful, and practical, this is a book for everyone, dyslexic or not.'
- Deyan Sudjic OBE, Director Emeritus, Design Museum
