Robert Kurson and Crashing Through
In his critically acclaimed bestseller Shadow Divers, Robert Kurson explored the depths of history, friendship, and compulsion. Now Kurson returns with another thrilling adventure -- the stunning true story of one man’s heroic odyssey from blindness into sight. A man, blind since age three, is offered the chance to see at age 46 through a revolutionary new stem cell transplant surgery. New vision after a lifetime of blindness, it turns out, is extremely rare and frought with emotional dangers. Crashing Through tells the story of the man's journey through vision -- one filled with risk, overwhelming beauty, romance, suspense, and new insight into the mystery of vision and the human brain.
