Seeing Lessons: 14 Life Secrets I've Learned Along the Way
In this motivational work, Tom Sullivan brings his life lessons to the page. Sullivan, best known for his autobiography If You Could See What I Hear, had his heyday appearing in films such as Airport '77, and serving as a special correspondent on Good Morning America. Judging by the contents of this volume, his career seems to have introduced him to celebrities who had good advice to share with him, from Helen Keller to Jack Lemmon, Merlin Olsen to Betty White, Muhammed Ali to Bo Derek, and he mines these encounters for the book.
Sullivan's varied accomplishments are remarkable, especially for a man blind since birth. When he writes about his family, his childhood and his disability, readers will glimpse the ambitious, but caring, individual behind this text. Sullivan makes convincing assertions that his blindness has given him the ability to "see" deeper than most people, writing, "I never met an ugly person, unless that person wanted to be ugly."
