Publisher's Summary

This is a book with three separate documents, consisting of the following: 

Document 1: The dyslexic brain has been a mystery to many, and only a source of understanding for a few. When we look into the way to identify dyslexia and all its accompanying ramifications, it’s nothing new that we will run into difficulties, some severe, some not so severe. 

Figuring out if you have dyslexia, what typifies those who have dyslexia, and what to expect in terms of personality, reading skills, and other related aspects, is a puzzle. Then, what’s crucial is to determine what to do about it, where it came from, and many things that can help us dive deeper into the science of the dyslexic brain, solutions, and comprehension on a higher level. This book does exactly that. As a basis for that grasp of what is often called a “disorder,” the author will guide you along as he shares his insights from his experiences. 

Document 2: Going deep into the studies of dyslexics and their strengths and weaknesses, the author of this book highlights some of the most overlooked aspects of the reading disability. He goes on to say that dyslexia is definitely hereditary, and shows various examples and studies to back his statements. The he poses the question, “What is the reading gene” in a less literal way. In the end, the teacher emphasizes a number of tips teachers can take away to handle those with dyslexia better.  

This book is an important part of a study that seems to explain the very essence of dyslexia, a precious gem to those who are involved in the topic.  

Document 3: Whether you think you are dyslexic or know someone else who might be, this guide can help you. It is the main theme. The author has studied the topic extensively, and all kinds of topics related to it. 

For example, there are studies that connect ADHD and dysgraphia to dyslexia. Other explanations and insights include focusing on dyscalculia and the anxiety that comes with it or with dyslexic problems. More information is available in the form of busting some of the most common myths about dyslexia, and revealing the full truth. And last but not least, this book shows you the benefits of dyslexia, and yes, there are many.  

Don’t wait and learn more about the disability now.

Awesome

So much information in here! I don't know where to start. Oh, I know.... let's just start with the fact that dyslexia isn't necessarily a disorder but a different way of thinking, and a way of seeing some pattern and structures that others don't. I think there are many helpful tools and exercises in here to discover if your child has dyslexia, questions and answers for parents to know what to do with it, and so much more. Not bad, if you ask me. Probably the best book about the topic on the market at this moment.

Great to see this

I'm happy to see that David Copperson has put in the effort, the time, and maybe even the money, to cooperate with Sam Logsdon and bring this audiobook to a great success. It contains a wealth of information about dyslexia and other learning disabilities related to it. Study it, listen to it, and you'll learn more about it.

Can't complain

Enough said. It's 10 and a half hours long. But hey, I guess I can say something else: Dyslexia is often misunderstood, which is why it's interesting to see books like this rise to the occasion and do something about that.

Not the best info or advice on Dyslexia

I've read several books on Dyslexia and am very familiar with the subject. I decided to try this one since it was a newer release. My advice is skip it. If you have read books such as "Overcoming Dyslexia," "The Gift of Dyslexia," or "The Dyslexia Empowerment Plan" then save yourself some time and skip this one.
I believe the author must be British as he frequently uses terms to describe Dyslexic people that come across as very crass and rude in America. For instance, he claims they have "not just a different brain, but a deviant brain". He spends time comparing their skills to kids that are "dullards'. He constantly uses the term "handicapped" rather than "learning disability" when talking about Dyslexia. When talking about signs of Dyslexia he states when they write it is "with rubbish" and "their efforts are nonsense".
The author does not seem to understand the difference between dyslexia, dysgraphia, and aphasia. He often describes aspects of one without making a distinction as to which issue he is talking about. He also does not seem to understand or clarify phonological awareness issues and how that plays a big part in dyslexia. The author claims that we don't know where in the brain dyslexia occurs, and that dyslexia is not likely to be spotted before the age of 8. When he described treatments for dyslexia it appears he is not familiar with the Orton-Gillingham method and gives terribly pessimistic advice about how hard it will be to find a qualified teacher. He even goes on to recommend finding an inexperienced person because teaching kids with dyslexia will be difficult for both the teacher and student. His term for Special Education classes is "a backward class".
He also likes to throw jabs at parents. At one point he says that the reason kids aren't diagnosed is because the parents are stubborn or don't want their kid to have a disability. He also lets parents know that if they would just read more to their kids, then that could help them overcome the reading and spelling problems more quickly. If that weren't enough to sell you on this book, the narration needs some help. Every time the narrator says the word "written" she pronounces it "ridden". I had to replay the audio the first time she said it because I thought I missed a story about someone riding something. Not a good word to mispronounce in a dyslexia book. I only listened to the first Section of this 3 book set. I had to stop as it was just too cringe worthy.
I noticed 3 of the 5 reviews for this audio book were all written on the same day. The other 2 are on back to back days in May. Not sure if the reviews are from people who actually bought and listened to the book or were just written to promote this book.

Very good

I discovered a lot just by soaking it all up. The information was excellent, particularly if you already know a tiny bit about the subject. In fact, you can understand nothing at all about it and still follow along effortlessly.

Good book

I am giving this specific manual 5 stars since I honestly appreciated it. I have actually seen that certain books are pretty much garbage, and that grieves me. On the other hand this specific audiobook didn't follow that trend. It's actually truly great. So, I appreciate it.

Nice book

I just had to say something, because if I hear something good, I want to tell others to give it a try too. That's what I am doing now. It is a real gem of a book. First, the length. Second, the information. Third, the narrator's professional performance. All get high points from me. That's all.
