____ 

The A-list comedian tells the story of his unlikely path to success while struggling with severe dyslexia.

When Phil Hanley entered first grade, he realized something that would forever set him apart from his peers: he couldn’t read. His teachers were ill-equipped to assist him and wrote him off as a hopeless case. Phil slipped through the school's cracks, year by year falling farther and farther behind his friends, only passing to each next grade because of his mother’s interventions. Finally, he was diagnosed with dyslexia, a learning disability that would shape the rest of his life.

In Spellbound, Phil Hanley shares his experience living with debilitating dyslexia. Unable to pursue college or a traditional job, Phil was thrust into a life to be defined by unconventional twists. He moved to Europe and became a successful runway model, a job that suitably kept him away from pens and paper. In search of fulfillment that couldn’t be found posing for a Docker’s ad, Phil retreated home to Vancouver where, desperate to manage the mental health issues connected to living with dyslexia, he turned to an all-consuming obsession with Transcendental Meditation. Finally, he found himself on a stage with a microphone, a spotlight, and five minutes of jokes. Stand-up became the first pursuit that the more Phil put into it, the more he got out, and something that he compellingly argues, saved his life. Spellbound is a story of humor and also of struggle and heartbreak, of constantly living in a world that sees things differently than you, and of triumph over adversity.

Phil shows us that dyslexia can be a huge challenge, but having it does not spell certain condemnation (nor can he). Just the opposite: dyslexia has been more than a blessing in his life–it’s been his north star.

Shipping and Handling

Media Mail is a cost-effective way to send non time sensitive media materials through the U.S. Postal Service. While the USPS estimates that Media Mail will arrive in 2 to 10 days we have seen some packages take much longer (the USPS says that this method can, at times, take up to two months to deliver). Media Mail items are not insured and are subject to postal inspection. The USPS retains the right to open and inspect your package to check for abuse of the system such as including an item not on their approved items list. Unfortunately, when a package is inspected, it is often poorly re-packaged before delivery to the customer. Clients who choose Media Mail as a low cost option will not be provided with a replacement book if their copy arrives damaged as this method is not insurable.

Priority Mail and UPS Ground while more expensive options, these methods deliver within 2 - 6 business days.  If your order is time sensitive and you want to ensure your book arrives without damages, we recommend upgrading your shipping speed to either Priority Mail or UPS Ground. Both of these methods offer package delivery insurance and we will replace your copy if it was damaged in transit.  That being said, if you have participated in a limited time signed copy promotion there are very limited copies available of extra signed copies.  These replacements will be provided to customers on a first come first served basis and we may not be able to replace copies for all customers if there are multiple claims for damages in transit.
