Well known media people and entrepreneurs with dyslexia talk about the challenges of dyslexia in childhood, and how the strengths of dyslexia have helped them to achieve later success.

Twenty-three well-known people from the arts, sport, and business worlds talk about how dyslexia affected their childhood and how they were able to overcome the challenges and use the strengths of dyslexia to achieve success in adulthood. Darcey Bussell, Eddie Izzard, Sir Richard Branson, Meg Mathews, Zoe Wanamaker, Sir Richard Rogers, Benjamin Zephaniah, Lynda La Plante, Jackie Stewart, Sophie Conran, and others share their stories, and their advice. An introduction and final section that includes practical information about dyslexia are written with the support of Dyslexia Action. A percentage of the profits from the book will be donated to the organization.

Margaret Rooke has twenty years' experience as a writer on national newspapers, magazines, and regional newspapers. Her daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of thirteen. Margaret lives in London, UK.
