This book was lent to me by a friend, who is also dyslexic. Reading it provided such comfort not just from its wide range of information but from reading statements that so clearly confirmed why I am finding playing the piano and learning to read music such a challenge. So often I try and explain my difficulties to people who don't understand the impact dyslexia can have and so often I am left thinking that I obviously didn't explain myself clearly enough, as they seem to indicate that other people have the same challenges - THEY DON'T!!! I'm dyslexic and not afraid to talk about it. Thank goodness there are people out there, writing books like this, who do understand and are prepared to invest them time, skills, knowledge and experience to provide such supportive and inspirational material.
