No current Talk conversations about this book.

What ages would I recommend it too? – Twelve and up.

Length? – Most of a day’s read.

Characters? – The author and few of his close family and friends.

Setting? – Real World.

Written approximately? – 2012.

Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Yes. Some chapters seemed a bit short - as if the main part had been left out by accident.

Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? 1. Talking with others about blindness, especially when job hunting. 2. Locating resources for the blind or low vision. 3. Locating transportation help for those not in the city. 4. Self defense.

Short storyline: A series of poetry (some excellent) interspersed with useful information for people who are fully blind. Seems to be particularly geared to teachers and parents, not adults who are losing vision. (That's fine, we need books for both!) I appreciated the idea of tactile maps. It gives me ideas on how I may be able to help myself a my vision declines. The screen readers and magnifiers section will be a big help to me as well as my vision declines. Some days I can see the screen, some days, like today, I can't. I'd really like a program that would read and dictate for me.

Notes for the reader: A good primer for understanding how the blind from birth interact with the world. Some good poetry. ( )
