Dyslexia Adults Don't Buy
I am a dyslexic adult and I was so excited when I found this book (on CD). Finally a book that will help me overcome my problems. Boy was I wrong. It left me very disappointed and yet again with no answers. If you have a child that is dyslexic then this book maybe of some use for you. It also has good information to help one understand the disability but this book is not for adults looking for solutions. I was hoping this book could help fix me. I was wrong and I felt like I wasted 13 hrs of my time. In the summary it said "an easy-to-follow plan of action offering help and hope to all who have reading problem" It should say offering help and hope to Children not ALL.

Overcoming Dyslexia was an extremely helpful book. I found myself talking to my son's reading teacher quoting many times facts from the book. I even check the book out from the library just to get a handle on some of the beginning sight words my son should be recognizing (as the audio book just reads one word after another and is too difficult to write down! :-)
If you are thinking this is too long of an audio or maybe contains useless information - I would offer you this advise; get the book! It has changed the direction of my son's school curriculum and has helped me understand the maze of reading disabilities!
