Full disclosure here: I am Gordana's brother, Altiana's uncle. Because of circumstances, I didn't get to see much of my niece during the first 12 years of her life. We never lived on the same continent till recently. We only got to see each other during a few Christmas visits. While I had heard she was dyslexic, I had never witnessed her struggle with reading first-hand. In recent months, I have gotten to know my niece much better. And the 13 year old girl I know loves to read. She loves her uncle's old comics (X-Men in particular). In short, her dyslexia seems to be a thing of the past.Then I read The road to cheerful and got the whole story. While the topic of learning disabilities is a serious one this book teems with frankness and humour. The story is very personal but the lessons learned can help many others in similar situations. As the title suggests, the book is not only about learning disabilities but the psychological damage such disabilities can have on people. Spoiler alert: it has a happy ending!I want to share someone else's experience with the book and the reading technique in it. I tutor ESL privately and one day recently I got a unique request. A young man emailed me telling me he has dyslexia. He had only recently been diagnosed after struggling with the problem on his own for 20-plus years. He was at his wit's end and tried contacting me for help. Having never dealt with such a request, and of course being familiar with the book, I arranged a meeting with my sister and him.When I met the young man, he seemed as normal and articulate as anyone. When the topic of dyslexia was discussed, he did a good job of putting on a brave face but the stress inside was evident.
