    Review quote
    "In this gem of a book, Dr. Sally Shaywitz uses her voice, her images, her brain-and yes, her heart-to shine a piercing and clarifying light on what we so inadequately call 'dyslexia.' What is more, she shows how almost everyone can overcome it." --Daniel D. Federman, M.D., "Fascinating. . . . Shaywitz has illuminated the inner workings of dyslexic minds." --"Time " "An important book.... For the first time, scientists are understanding how the brain works...in the act of reading. Front and center now is Sally Shaywitz." -"The Baltimore Sun" " "
