“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
