Educator Nancy L. Mindick, who also suffers from prosopagnosia, attempts to fill an information hole with her important book, Understanding Facial Recognition Difficulties in Children... As one who suffers from the disorder she's writing about, Mindick has obvious insight into the emotions that go along with the condition and is brave enough to use her own history as a guide in her writing... It's also evident that Mindick has spent countless hours studying her condition. She offers lucid explanations of the science behind face blindness and explores the differences between developmental prosopagnosia, which starts in childhood, and situational, which occurs as a result of brain injury or illness. Perhaps most importantly, she encourages celebrating the individual talents and personal successes of any person learning to live with prosopagnosia. People suffering from its effects will welcome this accessible, concise, practical book.
