Positive, exciting and life changing.


When I first heard about this book the title grabbed my attention. Dyslexia could be a gift?!? I was looking for answers for my 10 year old son who excelled in many areas, but struggled with reading and writing - while also being plagued by low self esteem and little self confidence. As soon as I began reading it, it was as though Ron Davis was describing my son, and knew him inside out! I became very excited and began using the exercises in the book. It made so much sense, and had straight forward and detailed instructions on how to help my son - and other dyslexics. An STLD (special teacher for learning difficulties) at my sons school also read it and decided to take up where I'd left off, and use it to help him. I was excited to watch as he grew in self confidence, began to read, and his life changed. I've recommended it to many parents and teachers.

Amazing insight into my son's brain. Loved it.


I bought this book as it was written by a dyslexic not a 'professional specialist' as an insight into my son's brain. I listened to the audio book in conjunction with reading the references in the book. This book has a lot of info on how remedial classes and school affect/ruin the child's self esteem and can leave them at a third grade reading level. The author gives an amazing way of helping them being able to focus and master the works that are confusing them. Loved it!

Easy and effective


I have read other books on dyslexia and found myself disappointed. The gift of dyslexia offered a different point of view and constructive, easily understood comments on dealing with the issue. Instead of harping on about advocating for your child and getting you child assessed this book offered real life solutions to what the author considers a solvable problem. I am now in complete agreement with the author, dyslexia is just a state of confusion and once this confusion is corrected the problem is solved. I have been recommending this book to anyone with a child that is having problems at school.
