Book Cover “The Right Brain for the Right Time”

As you know, I am finally attempting to write that book, titled

“the Right Brain for the Right Time” – You don’t have to be Dyslexic, but it Helps

(or another version of a subtitle: Unlock the Dyslexic Potential and turn frustrated readers into inspiring leaders)…what’s better?

The cover that came back (an X-ray skull on green background) just didn’t do it for me, so I have asked some of my artist friends to send their art and input. I really love this one by my Austrian Artist friend Thomas Girbl…but not sure if it relates to the story.ImageStacey O’Neil

the second graphic version came from Wellington, NZ, my lovely artist friend Stacey sent it and I love it! Again, I think it won’t give the message I try to give – but what do you think?

This actually does give an interesting message, in relation to the story, with the tree and its branches symbolising the brain, growth, potential, and creativity in its shape. It comes from Google images and therefore lacks the personal touch, though.

After all that, I guess it’s time to actually start writing…Hoi by the Sea is the PERFECT place for it, I found. Total peace and serenity, unless you don’t like the sound of the ocean.


Author: Barbara Hoi

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
