If you never listen to another thing that anyone tells you about illiteracy, please — at least this time — accept the challenge to take six minutes to read this website about English functional illiteracy and — if you are at all compassionate about the serious problem of illiteracy — please read this award-winning book explaining how you can help end our provably real literacy crisis. You, your family and friends, and the entire English-speaking world will benefit if the proposal in this breakthrough book is adopted.
Please do not think you can merely scan through the website or book and reach the best conclusion about helping end our literacy crisis. With anything less than a careful, honest evaluation you will be potentially depriving an estimated 600 hundred million English-speaking people around the world of the help they so desperately need in learning to read. If you believe this is an exaggeration, it is only because you haven’t read all the vital facts presented. If you have read this far, here is some good news: the website you see upon clicking “English functional illiteracy” above offers the Second Revision of Let’s End Our Literacy Crisis as a 265 page e-book in .pdf format in the left-hand column at no cost or obligation of any kind.
