The Dyslexic Advantage is a paradigm-shifting book that captures the remarkable advantages that come with this different style of thinking. This book should be the first people reach for when they want to learn about what it really means to be dyslexic.

In this revolutionary book, the Eides use new brain science and their expertise in neurology and learning disorders to explain how individuals with dyslexia not only perceive the written word differently, but also conceive space more intuitively, see connections between unrelated objects, and are able to make great leaps creatively that others simply miss.

Publisher's Weekly
We've been thinking about dyslexia all wrong, say the Eides, two
prominent learning disabilities experts. They argue that the reading
disorder isn't just about barriers to learning but about the advantages
a dyslexic brain can provide; they offer a new theory of how dyslexic
brains process information. Along with some highly accomplished people
with dyslexia--like computer pioneer Bill Hewlett, Beatle John Lennon,
businessman Charles Schwab, and writer Anne Rice--the Eides explore the
lives of ordinary people who've found their different brains took them
in extraordinary directions, citing one family of father, daughter, and
grandson who all had dyslexia that allowed them to follow their
interests in building, design, and invention. The authors carefully
dissect the strengths of a dyslexic brain--including spatial reasoning;
mechanical ability; better perceptions of analogies, metaphors, and
paradoxes; and great recall of personal memories. Here's a practical
analysis of a difficult, frustrating disorder that unveils what goes
remarkably right as well as what goes wrong. The exploration is
encouraging for those hoping to capitalize on their dyslexic advantage,
concerned parents, educators, and anyone else interested in how these
unique brains work.
