Summary

Dyslexia affects one in 10 adults, yet most of the information available focuses on children and on what people can’t do (the deficit model). My work with thousands of adults with dyslexia and neuro-differences has shown me the key to success is having practical strategies for any weaknesses and an in-depth understanding of how to use your unique strengths. 

This inspiring book will: 1) enable you to understand your strengths and what to do about your weaknesses, 2) give you different ways of viewing intelligence and help you realise your unique abilities, 3) give you an understanding of how the brain works and how to get the most out of your cognitive profile, 4) outline real-life case studies for a deeper understanding of how dyslexia affects people and what strategies they use to reach their full potential, 5) explain how personality differences affect how you think, lear,n and work, 6) encourage you to take action, develop your confidence, and achieve great things. I have personally narrated this book to give you a firsthand account of my experiences and insights. I hope you enjoy it.

Super Practical Valuable Book and Well narrated

I really like this book. The author is being really careful to cut out all of the fluff and get straight to the valuable nuggets of practical information. for example, I particularly like how she suggests you
disclose your dyslexia to an employer and how she just gets you to talk about your strengths first and then talk about some of your difficulties. There’s a lot of information out there about dyslexia but it’s targeted towards reading and children. Which is really important but as an adult with dyslexia the difficulties can show up and so many other small ways that trip you up and the author really helps you see so many of those difficulties and avoid them. Highly recommend this book.

Also, the narration by the author is brilliant because she really puts the depth of meaning into the tone of her voice it’s fantastic having the book narrated by the actual author it just gives you so much more understanding.

Don’t hesitate download it start listening to it if you’ve got mild to moderate dyslexia you will really find this book helpful at work.

Engaging, interesting and helpful read

Many books focus on dyslexia in childhood whereas this looks in detail at adult dyslexia and how to navigate the world. It is a simple, clear read that looks at the positives and strengths that living with neurodiversity can bring to you. Really refreshing and interesting both for those with & without dyslexia. It includes real-life case studies which bring the book to life. Highly recommend!

Loved this!

How refreshing. An audio book on dyslexia that gets straight to the point. It had insightful information about how dyslexia really affects people, lovely case studies which I could relate to and great tips I'm going to use today. All of that in a mornings' listen! I needed that Cheryl thank you so much.

Wonderful Resource

This book is not just another academic or clinical treatment of dyslexia. It is more like a suggestion or guide book for real people. Ms. Isaacs gives real life examples of what people with dyslexia experience, and then practical advice and strategies to identify and emphasize strengths to compensate for weaker areas or skills. She doesn't treat dyslexia like some kind of handicap or deficiency. She shows how existing skills can be used and developed to improve performance. She also gives some basic but very helpful suggestions for dealing with day-to-day performance issues that are common among people with dyslexia. This is a very genuine book in the author's own voice. It is clear that she understands and wants to help. It is a wonderful resource.
