Product Description In this inspirational new memoir, Ted Hinson invites readers inside his head, enabling them to better understand the numerous challenges the blind face on a daily basis. Hinson takes readers back to 1986, when he was an ambitious young husband working in the oil and gas industry in Oklahoma. He had a promising future and a one-year-old son, but when he was twenty-seven, he unexpectedly lost his sight. Many would have been devastated by the loss, but with the support of his family and his church, Hinson summoned the strength and determination to go on. Not only was he able to continue his career, but he also helped his wife raise five children, stayed active in sports, coached basketball, and otherwise led a “normal” life. In Beyond the Blindness, Hinson candidly shares the ups and downs of living with vision loss, including insights into strategies he uses to cope with daily activities and the humorous situations he often encounters in everyday life. The subject matter of Hinson’s story is serious, and blindness isn’t the only tragic event he’s faced. His upbeat writing style, however, shows the importance of hope and optimism in the face of adversity.
