If somebody struggles with basic reading and spelling, are they dumb or dyslexic? Such a question is rarely pondered by non-dyslexics, but it is very pertinent to dyslexics themselves.
How do I know this? Because I am myself dyslexic, and I have experienced all the trials and tribulations which come with this condition. This book is a very personal and realistic exploration of what it is like to be dyslexic. Not only do I pass on my own understanding of dyslexia, but I also hope to tackle the self-doubt which is so prominent with dyslexics. Although this book is aimed at dyslexics, it also explores subjects which anyone could relate to, amongst other things our human pursue for happiness.
