Do you know things without being able to explain how or why? Do you solve problems in unusual ways? Do you think in pictures rather than in words? If so, you are not alone. One-third of the population thinks in images. You may be one or you may live with one. If you teach, it is absolutely certain that some of your students—probably the ones you aren’t reaching—are visual-spatial learners. Dr. Linda Silverman coined the term "visual-spatial learner" in 1981 to describe the unique gifts of people who think in images. They get the big picture because they see the world through artists’ eyes. They remember what they see, but forget what they hear. They’re disorganized, can’t spell and have no sense of time, but they have an infectious sense of humor, wild imaginations and can lose themselves completely in the joy of the moment. A visual-spatial learner created the computer and the Internet, the vivid displays at the Olympics, and the International Space Station. Upside-Down Brilliance: The Visual-Spatial Learner is the blueprint for parenting, teaching and living with these delightfully different beings. It is also a manual for discovering and honoring your own hidden gifts.

I’ve been waiting for this book for years, and it is everything I hoped for and more. It is wise, warm, funny, practical, intensely personal, and truly inspirational. It belongs on the shelf of every parent whose child does not seem to fit in the mainstream, and of every teacher who wants to reach those students who have clear potential but just can’t seem to "get it" when it comes to tests, and of all adolescents and adults who have struggled with those problems themselves and may still be struggling.

Linda Silverman has written a graceful and much needed book that highlights different kinds of spatial intelligence. She has focused on the type of visual thinking women use and in so doing has turned the searchlight on a relatively unexamined area. This book will help change the way you think about "seeing." Leonard Shlain, M.D. Author of the best-seller, The Alphabet vs. the Goddess, and Art & Physics
