About the Author

Kate Power works in the creative industries, and has dyslexic children.
Kathy Iwanczak Forsyth is a graphic designer and has dyslexic children.


What's wonderful about this book is that it shows dyslexia from a range of personal perspectives. Dyslexia is not a generic experience -- it's as unique as the people who live with it on a daily basis. With this book Kathy and Kate have shown us how the perception of dyslexia has changed over time, and how those dealing with it have grown to see dyslexia as a strength rather than a weakness impacting on education. An inspiring read!--Kenny Wheeler, Senior Consultant Teacher at Driver Youth Trust
Inspiring, insightful, and practical, this is a book for everyone, dyslexic or not.--Deyan Sudjic OBE, Director Emeritus, Design Museum

A treasure box for the dyslexic mind to explore, to taste, to mull over and expand your horizon of possibilities using your gift.
I want to shout about this book to the stars and back again!

--Jane Elson, children's author and dyslexia mentor
What a beautiful and inspiring book that highlights how the many role models mentioned have channeled any challenges related to dyslexia into strength across their lives.--Lauren Brukner, MS, OTR/L, Author with Jessica Kingsley Publishers
This innovative and creatively laid out book includes stunning photographs and inspirational quotes. As a dyslexic, Eddie Izzard is one of my role models. In this book, he doesn't shy away from challenges faced by dyslexics (e.g. the letter C) but also gives good advice about how to achieve your goals. I love the idea of being helped by your future self.--Alais Winton, JKP author and private tutor working with dyslexic children in Wales
Both inspirational and practical, this book celebrates the incredible talent that shapes our world. Hopefully it will act as a powerful reminder to us all that dyslexics and other diverse minds, must be supported and encouraged through our education system, so that the future doesn't miss the undoubted potential that this form of creativity brings to bare on our challenges and problems.--Kate Stanners, Chairwoman & Global Chief Creative Officer, Saatchi & Saatchi
