From the Inside Flap

If you ask contractors, engineers, rocket scientists, or even famousmystery novelists if they had trouble with reading in school, anastonishing number will answer: "Yes, how did you know?"


Authors Brock and Fernette Eide know why people in these professions tend to have had difficulties with reading and writing. The cause issimple: their brains are different.  Individuals who have dyslexia,whether it is mild or severe, think uniquely about what they see andlearn in their everyday lives, whether it's in a classroom, at a job, or in their own home.  


In this revolutionary book, the Eides use new brain science andtheir expertise in neurology and learning disorders to explain howindividuals with dyslexia not only perceive the written worddifferently, but also conceive space more intuitively, see connectionsbetween unrelated objects, and are able to make great leaps creativelythat others simply miss.  


Presenting a variety of case studies and true stories to support the science, The Dyslexic Advantage demonstrates that each individual with dyslexia is unique, and faces specificchallenges while, at the same time, experiences remarkable talent andability.  Carefully explaining how four areas dyslexics excel in appearin the activities of children and adults, the Eides provide usefuladvice on how to maximize an individual's potential in: materialreasoning (used by architects and engineers); interconnected reasoning(scientists and designers), narrative reasoning (novelists and lawyers); and dynamic reasoning (economists and entrepreneurs.) 


Putting emphasis on the advantages of the dyslexic brain rather than the well-trod challenges with reading and writing, the Eides blendadvice from successful individuals who learned to excel at "beingdyslexic" with findings from their research that parents, educators, and individuals with dyslexia can use to help maximize their dyslexicadvantage.


Providing the first complete portrait of dyslexia, the Eides show that it is not a condition people have, but rather a part of who someone is―which can be cultivated as a great strength.
