This was a book that we read for my book club that provoked interesting discussions. It’s a non fiction book telling the story of a man, Michael May, who was blinded by an accident when he was three years old, and when he was in his forties, the opportunity to gain his sight back arose. Mike May was an interesting, if not likable, man who did not let his blindness keep him from doing anything he wanted to do. His mother fostered this by allowing Mike to ride his bike into town alone, build a 60-foot radio antennae in the backyard, and numerous other things. He is an entrepreneur, holds the record for the fastest downhill ski for a blind person, and does so many thing one would think impossible for a blind person.
