I predict that the book will be a huge success. I think you covered all the bases related to vision loss. The book is written in a comfortable, confident, relaxed laid back down to earth, easy to read style. The examples from your personal life add a special touch…. The resource list is superb and comprehensive. Most important of all, the majority of readers should come away feeling encouraged, positive and hopeful. Those that don't, probably need to work on accepting their vision loss first."

"As a "sighted" person, I found it enlightening and informative. In this politically correct environment we live in I am glad to hear I can still refer to someone who is blind as being blind, instead of visually challenged. Anyone who reads the book will come away with that same new perspective."


Dealing With Vision Loss offers not only the hope, but the answers and resources needed to meet the challenge of vision loss.
