Abstract

Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal 16: 259–262, 2003. 259 Book review Imagery and text: A dual coding theory of reading and writing by Mark Sadoski and Allan Paivio. 2001. Mahwah, New Jersey: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, 236 pp. ISBN 0-8058-3439-7, US$24.50, paperback The unspeakable images of September 11, 2002, that were seared into our memories on that tragic day bear testament to the role of visual imagery in cognition. They represent more than words can say and remind us that no matter how well written text conveys meanings, reading and writing are not exclusively verbal. Mark Sadoski and Allan Paivio provide an academically rigorous explana- tion of a unified theory of reading and writing consistent with the dual coding theory of cognition.
