Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by José-contemplates-Saturn's Aurora | 2/13/2014

    " This book will endure for long in my memory. It's about a blind man who overcame his physical handicap and travelled the world around: Australia,Siberia, South Africa.....Amazing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Donna Swartz | 1/31/2014

    " This man was astonishing and his story is told very well by Jason Roberts. It reminded me a little of Joshua Slocum's book about circumnavigating the world single handedly in a small boat, in that the main character brushed off the difficulty of the passage. In regard to viewing the "handicapped" this is an attitude changing book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Bill | 1/30/2014

    " This has got to be one of the most inspirational books you can ever read. Here's this guy in the 1800s, completely blind, circumnavigating the globe by himself. He puts us all to shame. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by God's Dad | 1/20/2014

    " It's been several years and hundreds of books. I enjoyed the style if I recall. "
