I didn't read the whole thing (I did skim the other chapters) but this book is just not useful to adults with dyslexia. I read the first two chapters, explaining the basics, then the chapters on adult dyslexia and dyslexia in college but I found no information useful in the other chapters. In addition, much of the context was country-specific (only applicable to the US). All I got out of it was a website I intend to look up. It is not that no one will benefit from this book, but clearly it was the wrong book for me.
