We all know the disadvantages of dyslexia; this book lifts the curtains on its advantages. In making their claims, Doctors Brock and Fernette Eide aren't being wide-eyed, crazy optimists; they are basing their assertions on recent research and proven results. They don't minimize the challenges that dyslexics face as they attempt to reshuffle letters and words, but they note that brain science shows that these men and women, girls and boys, often excel at other skills, ranging from those useful to architects, surgeons and scientists to the gift of narrative that is so essential to novelists and lawyers. The first complete portrait of dyslexia.

Two neurolearning experts reveal the hidden benefits of having a dyslexic brain.
In this paradigm-shifting book, neurolearning experts Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide describe an exciting new brain science that reveals that dyslexic people have unique brain structure and organization. While the differences are responsible for certain challenges with literacy and reading, the dyslexic brain also gives a predisposition to important skills, and special talents.
While dyslexics typically struggle to decode the written word, they often also excel in such areas of reasoning as mechanical (required for architects and surgeons), interconnected (artists and inventors); narrative (novelists and lawyers), and dynamic (scientists and business pioneers). The Dyslexic Advantage provides the first complete portrait of dyslexia.
"A compelling call to action."
