Starred review. [Schultz's] affecting prose will inspire compassion and leave readers with an understanding not only of dyslexia, but of the lifelong challenges that someone with disabilities may face.
This beautifully written and compact memoir chronicles the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet's journey through life as a dyslexic. ...His story will resonate with any young adult who may be dealing with a learning disability, and it will promote understanding and perhaps compassion in others.--Vicki Emery
I can certainly relate to [Schultz's] self-doubt, as must the multitude of dyslexics reading his thoughtful memoir. . . . But this is not a self-pitying book, or one filled with dry dyslexia facts. The condition has shaped Schultz into the man he is today, and he's glad it did.
Under the rubric of 'inspirationally instructive, ' Schultz offers a compact book. Yet, writing with a focused mind, he dilates at length on the struggle within that mind.
