CREATIVE SUCCESSFUL DYSLEXIC
Author: Margaret Rooke, Foreword by Mollie King 23 well-known people from the arts, sport and business worlds talk about how dyslexia can make some things harder to learn and present challenges, but also how they see the way their brain works differently as an advantage. They believe it has given them a special determination, creativity and way of seeing the world. Darcey Bussell CBE, Eddie Izzard, Sir Richard Branson, Meg Mathews, Zoe Wanamaker CBE, Richard Rogers, Benjamin Zephaniah, Steven Naismith, Lynda La Plante CBE, Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, Sophie Conran and others share their stories, and their advice. Those interviewed talk about `thinking sideways' the ability to look at a bigger picture, listen, and grasp simplicity where other people see complexity. An introduction and final section that includes practical information about dyslexia are written with the support of Dyslexia Action, and a percentage of the profits from the book will be donated to Dyslexia Action. The book will be useful for teachers and other professionals, for families and people affected by dyslexia.
