Crashing Through: A True Story of Risk, Adventure, and the Man Who Dared to See by Robert Kurson
In Crashing Through, Robert Kurson (Shadow Divers) tells the story of Mike May, who was blinded at age 3 in a chemical explosion. He went on to live a successful and exemplary life despite his blindness. He set downhill ski records, became an engineer and designed a GPS unit for the blind, worked for the CIA, and volunteered in Africa. When he was 46, he was told that surgery could restore his eyesight. After much consideration, he finally agreed. The results were surprising, although not always in a positive way. Crashing Through has received positive reviews with the New York Daily News saying, "In the end, the resourcefulness he brought to living a life that was as satisfying sighted as it had been sightless was ingenious. May's story and Kurson's telling of it are beyond eye-opening."
