Time consuming instructions. Not for mild dyslexia. The techniques are workable for jr. high or high school students not pressed for time. Some exercises required too much time to complete. I suppose that doing them over and over would build speed and improve retention of the study material. Also, the size of the book is not very useful. It is small with very small type. It is a pale purple, which makes it harder to read.
This is the perfect guide for dyslexic individuals! It's extremely visual and great for students such as myself. This is definitely one of the few books that I feel really understands the condition by illustrating everything! The flow just works.
This book is ok. It outlines a some good, techniques on how to approach studying, but within a very limited scope. The reason I disliked this book is that it only focuses on the shortcomings of dyslexics. It treats dyslexics as if they are defective, calling out dyslexics as having poor short term memory, and slow information processing speed. Reading this as a dyslexic did not excite me to use the learning styles in this book. Rather it made me feel stupid, and inadequate. Making me think that the person who wrote this book really does not understand dyslexia at all. I recommend reading, The Dyslexic Advantage: Unlocking the Hidden Potential of The Dyslexic Brain by Brock I. Eide & Fernett L. Eide.
