Jonathan explains the latest theories and provides concrete examples of how to prepare students and implement frameworks that best support their academic and professional pursuits. He blends research and human interest stories with concrete tips that parents, students, teachers and administrators can follow to transform learning environments and create a world that truly celebrates cognitive diversity."

Eide Neurolearning Blog: Our Book Deal: The Dyslexic Advantage
"Viewed across a broader range of activities and over their entire lifespan, most dyslexic individuals not only cease to appear disabled, but they actually appear remarkably capable—even specially advantaged. This dyslexic advantage is clearly apparent in studies showing that dyslexic individuals are represented in at least twice their incidence in the population in such complex fields as engineering, astrophysics, art, computer graphics, and entrepreneurship. It's also apparent in the fact that dyslexic individuals often rank among the most eminent and creative persons in their professions. Findings like these do more than cast doubt on the simplistic equation "dyslexia equals disability"—they completely destroy it.

That's the exciting message of The Dyslexic Advantage: That dyslexia isn't just a learning disorder—that there's a remarkable, strength-producing aspect to dyslexic processing that's as central to what dyslexia is all about.""
