  • What links Winston Churchill, Alan Sugar, Richard Branson, Jamie Oliver, David Bailey, Will Smith and countless other high achievers in a huge range of fields? In this paradigm-shifting book, neuro-learning experts Drs Brock and Fernette Eide describe an exciting new brain science that reveals that people with dyslexia have unique brain structure and organisation. 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. With much-needed prescriptive advice for parents, educators and dyslexics, "The Dyslexic Advantage" provides the first complete portrait of dyslexia. Supporting their claims with groundbreaking science and interviews with successful dyslexics and innovative teachers, the authors of this essential book show how the unique strengths of dyslexia can be captured for success at home, at school and at work.
