Imagine if you were to lose your sight? Would it feel like the end of everything worthwhile? There is a way forward. Once you realise that blindness is a word and not a sentence, life takes on a new perspective. There are ways to thrive with vision loss. This book reveals how to turn such a life-challenge into a lifestyle you can fully manage and enjoy.

Maribel Steel's heart-warming story is part memoir, part guide. She demystifies what it means to be blind, and provides a unique set of 'tools' to enable you to forge ahead with tenacity.

By offering a realistic picture of the possible, Blindness for Beginners will help you to adjust emotionally, adapt in practical ways, and enhance your self-confidence.

Her insights will give a clearer vision of the realities and possibilities- for visually impaired and sighted readers alike. If you want to discover how to retain your love of cooking, how to manage daily visual tasks with less sight, how to travel independently and in short, how to accept and adapt to vision loss while retaining your sense of humour, this book id for you.

For the sighted reader, there are also chapters that focus on how to assist a person who is visually impaired. Explore common questions and discover practical ways to live and work alongside a person with low vision.

'I was struck by Maribel's ability to weave uplifting words together in such a fashion that I believed I could do anything. I see this book as a beacon of hope, inspiration and motivation.'
