Don't Forget To... Smile: A memoir uncovering the hidden difficulties of Dyslexia

Don't Forget to Smile explains how dyslexia impacts the whole person; how confidence and be so damaged that feelings of being stupid become the overwhelming voice and can stop people with dyslexia fulfilling their potential.
There are, however, gifts associated with being dyslexic and when we understand our diagnosis we can begin to overcome our difficulties and start to conquer the world one step at a time!
Despite winning the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 2008, Philip Schultz could never shake the feeling of being exiled to the bottom set in school. Not until his son was diagnosed with dyslexia, did Schultz realise that he suffered from the same condition. In his moving memoir, Schultz traces his difficult childhood. In doing so, he shows how a boy who did not learn to read until he was eleven went on to become a prize-winning poet by sheer force of determination. His balancing act - life as a member of a family with two dyslexics, countered by his successes as a writer - reveals an inspiring story of the strengths of the human mind.
