Following a review of basic research, the author provides a thorough account of skilled reading processes and carefully delineates the reasons for differences in reading ability. Comparisions between adult and child readers and between normal readers and dyslexics illuminate the theoretical discussion and demonstrate practical applications in therapy and pedagogy. Reading Ability will be of particular interest to students and researchers in educational psychology, cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, and reading psychology.
