Product description

Review

'An inspiring celebration of the science of reading.' -- The Guardian, April 2008

'For people interested in language, this is a must. You'll find yourself focusing on words in new ways. Read it slowly - it will take time to sink in.' -- William Leith, Sunday Telegraph, March 2008

`Everything about her book, which combines a healthy dose of lucid neuroscience with a dash of sensitive personal narrative, delights ... a beautifully balanced piece of popular-science writing' -- Boyd Tonkin, The Independent, February 2008

`This is a paean of praise for, and a rewarding exploration of, the creative reciprocities between writing, reading and thinking, it is especially good on dyslexia.' -- The Times, November 2008
