As I See It: From a Blind Man's Perspective. Revised and Expanded Edition. By Robert Theodore Branco. Paperback book. 153 pages.
In this book, Robert Branco, who has been legally blind from birth, discusses numerous issues pertaining to blindness, including legislation, discrimination, employment, myths about blindness, and adaptive technology. This second edition includes two dozen new essays on website accessibility, relationships, Beep Baseball, personal care issues, and much more.
The author's aim is to give the average reader a basic understanding of what it's like to live without total vision.
His perspective is both personal and professional. Not only has he lived with blindness his whole life, but he has also been involved with the promotion of various sports for the blind and disabled and is the publisher of The Consumer Vision, a monthly newsletter for the visually impaired which is read in more than half of U.S. states and on four continents.
Mr. Branco's previous publications include his autobiographical book My Home Away from Home: Life at Perkins School for the Blind and a cookbook, What We Love to Eat, for which all the recipes were submitted by blind contributors.
