Pain, confusion, and frustration are common emotions among the estimated 10 percent of the population with learning disabilities. In an uncomplicated reading, Dale Hill details the emotional impact of the author's multiple failures in school. After finally receiving help in his 50s, Sylvester has risen to become one of the nation's top advocates for people with learning disabilities of all kinds--from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to dyslexia. Hill conveys Sylvester's initial naïveté by speaking slowly and clearly, sounding innocent as a child. This straightforward production is imperative for educators and parents. A.G.H.
