Most Un'Likely to Succeed - A Review

Growing up in small-town McAlisterville, Pennsylvania in the 60's may seem like the ideal way to spend ones childhood, but for Nelson Lauver it was anything but ideal.

Nelson was terrified as being labeled the "dumb kid" so he did everything in his power to avoid reading out loud in class.  But with this acting out came harsh punishments and being known as the trouble-making, "bad kid."  However, Nelson was neither dumb nor bad, he suffers from dyslexia.

Most Unlikely to Succeed a memoir by Nelson Lauver is a tell-all tale of Nelson's own struggles with dyslexia.  He blends the raw facts with humor and will keep you turning those pages.  This is one of the best books I've read this year - I couldn't put it down!  You'll be amazed at some of the tactics teachers used in this small town to "rehabilitate" children with problems.

Here's more of what you'll learn from this book;
  • Finding the strength to get back up
  • Moving past your fears to discover your voice
  • Learning to champion your own cause
  • Believing in yourself
  • Overcoming insurmountable odds
