Read in March, 2009

Fascinating book about a man who became blind at age 3 and 40+ years later had to decide whether to do surgery that might give him sight back in one eye. Huge risks and dilemmas.....decision made, and fascinating outcome. Made me think a lot about what I learned in some of my favorite psychology classes as an undergrad (interestingly enough at one of the universities mentioned quite a bit in the book). The book was thoroughly entertaining -- I started reading it last night before bed and finished this morning. The writing wasn't great, but the story itself was so compelling that it didn't really get in the way.
