"Adult dyslexics have long been misunderstood. Their considerable talents have often been unrecognized and unrealized. Fortunately all this is changing. With the help of this new book by Gavin Reid and Jane Kirk many will come to see that dealing with difficulties must be balanced by understanding talents." Thomas G. West, Visualisation Research Institute, US National Dyslexia Researc Foundation, and author of In the Mind's Eye "This book provides factual information for educators, employers and dyslexia adults themselves. The authors tell the truth about the depressing effects of unacknowledged dyslexia, challenging each of us to think in a different way. They send out a clear, strong message: listen to dyslexic people." Joanne Rule, Chief Executive, British Dyslexia Association "In my opinion this authoritative and well-researched account should be recommended reading for anyone giving vocational guidance to clients with dyslexia or helping them deal with employment or training." Tim Edmonds of the Employment Service
