I found this short little interview of Paul Gordon to be interesting. He talks briefly about Harry's influence on his magic.



I strongly recommend Paul's books and DVD's.

This popped up in my YouTube feed earlier in the week, I imagine because I subscribe to Paul's channel. Nice interview.

          First I ever heard of Paul's "dyslexia" - his remark about being dyslexic makes him a better teacher sounds SOOOO familiar!

Hi Harry,

When I was at school in the 60s & 70s it wasn't called dyselexia. It was called being thick and/or a pain in the arse! I was only diagnosed 20 years ago!

It's another 'ailment' to sit aside my anxiety/depression!

x Paul

P.S They do say that dyslexic people are more creative/hardworking/energetic etc...

   Sorry; don't understand your meaning, Blathermist - probably because I'm dyslexic.

Me too on the dyslexic train.  I was diagnosed in grade three, (I think) , I'm 52 now.  At least with computers I'm reasonably sure my letters and numbers are at least orientated in the right direction.

      I'm 93 - so at fairly early grades back then I don't think teachers/principles, etc., knew the word "dyslexic."  Or pretended not to. They stamped me "moron."  So given the name, had to play the game!   (For a while, anyway.)

My Son was diagnosed dyslexic when he was around 5. However, he's always had an incredible aptitude for working out numbers/pure mathematics in his head.

As an aside, I'm not sure whether dyslexia has become more common but I have noticed a lot of people tend to misspell even pretty basic words these days (by the way, misspell is the UK version of the word, I think!). I just wonder whether this is due to people rarely using a pen and paper; as they've become more dependent upon tools such as auto-correct, etc. via digital media? Maybe, they just spend too much time reading Facebook, rather than a real book?

Finally, What does DNA stand for? National Dyslexics Association...........

I'll get my coat!

By the way, really enjoyed the interview Paul.
