“In the Mind's Eye brings out the special problems of people with dyslexia, but also their strengths, which are so often overlooked . . . . It stands alongside Howard Gardner's Frames of Mind as a testament to the range of human talent and possibility.” --Oliver Sacks, M.D.
"Thomas West brings to life the fascinating capacities and syndromes that arise from our visual-spatial imagination. His book proves beyond doubt that we are not all points on a single bell curve of intelligence." -- Howard Gardner
"Unfortunately, I did not discover this wonderful book beforre I wrote Thinking in Pictures....I recommend it to teachers, parents, and education policy-makers. West profiles people with dyslexia who are visual thinkers, and his conclusions on the link between visual thinking and creativity are similar to mine."
-- Temple Grandin
"Every once in a while a book comes along that turns one's thinking upside down. In the Mind's Eye is just such a book." --Roeper Review

was asked to leave summer high school algebra because she was holding back the class!
Five years later she aced "modern math for elementary teachers"! WHY? "Because modern math was about mathematics, which human minds have described, whereas arithmetic they tried to inflict on you in grade school is what machines can do so much better!" to paraphrase the professor.
After you have read about the great minds who could not succeed in school, you, too, will wonder why we are doing all this testing and lockstep education in our schools.
