For The Benefit Of Those Who See

Rosemary Mahoney describes the world as blind people experience it--and how we experience them.

You're doing just fine with all five or your senses working (more or less).

Author Rosemary Mahoney profiles people who live with blindness, many in unsympathetic cultures around the world, in her book For The Benefit of Those Who See.
