About the Book

This book provides readers with a factual study of the meaning of dyslexia.


The author journeys through time back to the sixties and seventies at school life with corporal punishment.  Stephen then balances the school systems of the sixties to the school life today, and compares just how much help is available today.


The author uses examples of people who suffer from dyslexia, including his own experience.  He then demonstrates how people can become successful despite their disability using celebrities as examples.


Finally, the author looks at the prison system and how many prisoners are affected by dyslexia.
