DYSLEXIA MY LIFE - one mans story of his life with a learning disability. In elementary school G.

In reality he suffered from dyslexia, which can affect speech, reading, time perception, and can slow learning in some subjects. In his book, DYSLEXIA MY LIFE , Mr. Sagmiller discusses his struggles to overcome the ignorance and prejudice of his friends, family and society in general, to succeed in school (getting his MBA), business and life. The book DYSLEXIA MY LIFE has fairly large-size print and is packed full of emotion, drama, helpful tips, surprise and inspiration. It is told in the matter-of-fact tone of someone who has lived through quite extraordinary events without realizing they are anything out of ordinary. Besides being an engaging personal story, the book provides quite an education regarding the profound effects of dyslexia on a persons educational, social and emotional experiences.
