The Woman Who Changed Her Brain: How I Left My Learning Disability Behind and Other Stories of Cognitive Transformation by Barbara Arrowsmith-Young
More than anything, The Woman Who Changed Her Brain is an exposition on what’s possible. It tells the story of how the author, Barbara Arrowsmith-Young, overcame her own learning disorders, and how she has helped hundreds of other people to do the same. It gives accounts of these successes, and hope to people with learning disabilities, who’ve been told in the past that they’re incurable.
However, one of the flaws of the book is its failure to address the methods used to fix these learning disorders. In fact it’s annoyingly vague in this area. When you read it you learn that change is possible, you just don’t learn how to implement it. An inspirational read, but it provides very little actionable advice for the reader to take action with.
