Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"Struggling for years with dyslexia, Stephen shares with the reader successful ways to find a way through our struggles, seemingly over-whelming challenges and the feeling of hopelessness. The message in this book is a message of hope, by applying effective strategies to minimise dyslexia and instil a self-belief that does not falter. The objective behind this book is to motivate the reader to tap into their potential by never giving up, apply goals, stay focused and to think in self- empowering ways. The writer points out that the greatest obstacle to the dyslexic is lack of self believe; which can be more of a hindrance than their dyslexia itself"--Publisher's description."Struggling for years with dyslexia, Stephen shares with the reader successful ways to find a way through our struggles, seemingly over-whelming challenges and the feeling of hopelessness.
