This is an interesting and insightful book which has been well researched and includes relevant case studies to illustrate key traits for the successful dyslexic.

Her book is cleverly structured; she has researched the traits required for success and then discussed each in turn, using a famous dyslexic as a case study, so Richard Branson and Kenny Logan (the rugby player) exemplify determination; Walt Disney exemplifies creativity and there are a host of other successful dyslexics, many from difficult backgrounds who exemplify different traits.
Malpas’s style is engaging and enthusiastic. The chapters are beautifully structured. The double spacing and wide margins are designed specifically for an audience of young people that might have visual problems or might have difficulties with reading. The white space between the sections allows thinking time for the reader to absorb what has been read. This is a thoughtful, sensitively designed book that does not place obstacles in front of the reader but carries s/he along with the repeated structures.
The aim is to encourage the reader to be confident and independent and so there is a section on coping strategies and access to further help to support the reader. Here, I believe is one of the great strengths of the book as most of these strategies would be as helpful to a less able student leaving school or a new graduate seeking work as to its intended audience. Many of the strategies discussed echo the growth mind set philosophy that is emerging in the best schools. This book should be used in every school in the country, not just for students with learning difficulties, but as a foundation for learning strategies throughout education.
