In the Mind's Eye, by Thomas G. West
The computer-generated information superhighway could launch a new renaissance of creativity for millions of visual thinkers! Some of the greatest minds in politics, science, literature, and the arts experienced undetected learning disabilities that stopped them from assimilating information the same way as their peers. Some of our most original intellects -- Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Lewis Carroll, and Winston Churchill -- relied heavily on visual modes of thought, processing information in terms of images instead of words or numbers. Recommended for adult readers, researchers, and others seriously interested in studying dyslexia.
