A second edition of "In the Mind's Eye" was released in September 2009 with a Foreword by Oliver Sacks, MD, who states: "In the Mind's Eye brings out the special problems of people with dyslexia, but also their strengths, which are so often overlooked. Its accent is not so much on pathology as on how much human minds vary. It stands alongside Howard Gardner's Frames of Mind as a testament to the range of human talent and possibility."

According to Physician and Author Richard Restak the modern world is rewiring our brains:
"We have learned so much about the human brain during the past two decades that it's fair to speak of a revolutionary change in our understanding of it. The era of the Old Brain is giving way to that of the New Brain...One pivotal concept underlies our understanding of the New Brain: "Plasticity." This refers to the brain's capacity for change. As recently as only a few years ago, most neuroscientists believed that brain plasticity largely ceased by adolescence or by early adulthood at the latest. At this point they believed the brain became fixed in it's structure and function---at least that was the prevailing assumption. But this assumption has turn out to be wrong."
"We now recognize that your brain isn't limited by considerations that are applicable to machines. Thoughts, feelings and actions, rather than mechanical laws, determine the health of our brain. Furthermore, we now know that the brain never loses the power to transform itself on the basis of experience, and this transformation can occur over very short intervals. For instance, your brain is different today that it was yesterday. This difference results from the effect on your brain of yesterday's and today's experiences, as well as thoughts and feelings you have entertained over the past 24 hours. Think, therefore, of the human brain as a lifetime work in progress that retains plasticity---the capacity for change ---as long as the "owner" is still alive."
