9780452282940: Touch the Top of the World: A Blind Man's Journey to Climb Farther than the Eye Can See: My Story

The incredible bestselling book from the author of No Barriers and The Adversity Advantage

Erik Weihenmayer
was born with retinoscheses, a degenerative eye disorder that would leave him blind by the age of thirteen. But Erik was determined to rise above this devastating disability and lead a fulfilling and exciting life.

In this poignant and inspiring memoir, he shares his struggle to push past the limits imposed on him by his visual impairment-and by a seeing world. He speaks movingly of the role his family played in his battle to break through the barriers of blindness: the mother who prayed for the miracle that would restore her son's sight and the father who encouraged him to strive for that distant mountaintop. And he tells the story of his dream to climb the world's Seven Summits, and how he is turning that dream into astonishing reality (something fewer than a hundred mountaineers have done).

From the snow-capped summit of McKinley to the towering peaks of Aconcagua and Kilimanjaro to the ultimate challenge, Mount Everest, this is a story about daring to dream in the face of impossible odds. It is about finding the courage to reach for that ultimate summit, and transforming your life into something truly miraculous.

"An inspiration to other blind people and plenty of us folks who can see just fine."—Jon Krakauer, New York Times bestselling author of Into Thin Air

From AudioFile:

Erik Weihenmayer, a blind man who climbed Mount Everest, has written a book that touches and inspires. In it, he discusses his struggles, failures, and successes without self-righteousness or bitterness. Nick Sullivan's reading captures Weihenmayer's persona with natural ease; he is adept discussing the limitations Weihenmayer's visual impairment creates. But his performance goes further. Sullivan exudes the admiration of Weihenmayer's friends and family for this world-class athlete, and also conveys the frustration Weihenmayer feels when he is treated differently because of his blindness. TOUCH THE TOP OF THE WORLD makes the reader realize that, quite often, our limitations are those we impose upon ourselves, and that dreams are worth pursuing.
