I think I have some form of music dyslexia.  Really.  I cannot  remember the 
simplest things in theory day to day, but can remember songs back  from the 
60's, and even words to same.  I do a lot of playing by ear, and  hope for the 
best.  Anyhow this book is a great help since I was once  totally baffled by 
the Circle of Fifths.  It finally dawned on me.   Eureka.  Not that I use the 
Circle of Fifths every day but at least I have  a nodding acquaintance with it.
Anyhow, it is called The Basic Guide to How to Read Music, by Helen Cooper,  
and I think that I got it through Amazon some years ago, or whenever I was  
having the Fifths fit.  Of course it has much in it about rhythm,  etc.  It is 
for both Adults and Children.  I fit in there  somewhere.
