Book review: Looking for heroes–One boy, one year, 100 letters

Like many dyslexic teenagers, Aidan Colvin can clearly identify his weaknesses. Yet everyone keeps telling him to “find his strengths.” Annoying, right? Aidan rightly asks: “how do you do that?” Looking for an answer to that question, he wrote letters to 100 dyslexic heroes to find out how they achieved success. He didn’t expect anyone to write back. Lucky for us–many of them did, and he shared them with the world in the book “Looking for heroes.”
