Interweaving her vast knowledge of neurology, sociology, psychology, and philosophy with fascinating down-to-earth examples and lively personal anecdotes, developmental psychologist, neuroscientist, and dyslexia expert Wolf probes the question “How do we learn to read and write?”
“Wolf’s first book for a general audience is an eye-opening winner, and deserves a wide readership.”
“Brilliant. One of the best books I’ve encountered this year.”
