23 very well-known people from the arts, sport, and business worlds talk about how dyslexia affected their childhood, how they were able to overcome the challenges and use the special strengths of dyslexia to achieve great success in adulthood. Darcey Bussell CBE, Eddie Izzard, Sir Richard Branson, Meg Mathews, Zoe Wanamaker CBE, Richard Rogers, Benjamin Zephaniah, Steven Naismith, Lynda La Plante CBE, Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, Sophie Conran and others share their stories, and their advice. All reveal the enormous difficulties they faced, the strength required to overcome them, the crucial importance of adult support, and how `the different way the brain is wired' in dyslexia has enabled them to see something different in the world and to use their creativity in an exceptional way. They talk about `thinking sideways', and the ability to look at a bigger picture, the often strong visual strength, and the ability to listen, and to grasp simplicity where other people see only complexity. They also talk about how dyslexia continues to challenge them, and the ways they have found to work around this. An introduction, and final section that includes practical information about dyslexia, are written with the support of Dyslexia Action, and a percentage of profit from the book is going to The British Dyslexia Association. The book will be essential reading for teachers and other professionals, and for families affected by dyslexia, and inspirational for people with dyslexia.

Ein charmanter, weiser und poetischer Roman über eine unerschütterliche Freundschaft, unerfüllte Sehnsüchte und eine lebenslange Liebe – vor der grandiosen Kulisse Kanadas. "Perfekt für alle, die auf der Suche nach dem Geheimnis des Lebens sind - und für alle anderen auch." Für Sie Die 83-jährige Etta hat noch nie das Meer gesehen. Mit etwas Schokolade, Wanderschuhen und einem Gewehr macht sie sich daher auf den 3.232 Kilometer langen Weg an die Ostküste Kanadas. Ihr Mann Otto lässt sie ziehen - trotz aller Sorge. Er ist vor vielen Jahren selbst zu einer großen Reise aufgebrochen, die sein Leben verändert hat. Ihr gemeinsamer Freund Russell hingegen will Etta zurückholen und verlässt zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben die heimische Farm. Auf ihrer Wanderung trifft Etta James, der sie durch das staubtrockene Land begleitet. Je näher Etta der Küste Kanadas und dem sehnsuchtsvoll erwarteten Meer kommt, desto lebendiger werden die Erinnerungen - Erinnerungen an die gemeinsame Jugend mit Otto und Russell, an Zeiten des Krieges an Hoffnungen und versteckte Gefühle, aber auch an die zahlreichen Erfahrungen, die sie miteinander geteilt haben. Die Musikerin Emma Hooper schreibt unvergleichlich über tiefe Liebe und Freundschaft, über Vertrauen und Hoffnung, über Abenteuer-Willen und den Mut, dem Leben immer wieder voller Neugier zu begegnen.

»Eddie Izzard ist der Jedi unter den Stand-Up-Comedians. Inspirierend, surreal, universal, visionär.« Michael Mittermeier Er liebt High Heels und lackierte Fingernägel. Er lief 27 Marathons an 27 Tagen, um an die Inhaftierung Mandelas zu erinnern. Er gilt als witzigster Mann Großbritanniens und trifft auch weltweit den Lachnerv — mit Gags über Hitler, Hunde, Darth Vader in der Todesstern-Kantine und Fische, die mit Fischen reden. Eddie Izzard, Humorgenie und Cross-Dresser, erzählt sein bewegtes Leben. In seiner Autobiographie »Believe Me« schildert der Entertainer lakonische, ergreifende und schreiend komische Episoden aus seinem Leben: von einer verlustreichen Kindheit, vom Entdecken einer komplizierten Sexualität, von ersten Comedy-Versuchen auf den Straßen Londons — und von seinem Plan, die Briten eines Tages zurück in die EU zu führen.
