Last night while pretending to watch the Super Bowl with my husband, I saw a commercial (for a mortgage company called Guaranteed Rate, I believe) and it said something about 'Why would a blind man climb Mt. Everest?" I perked up at that and saw that the commercial was showing Erik Weihenmayer! I have recommended his book to many people and most come back telling me that they really enjoyed it. If you read it, then you will find out what a fascinating journey Erik has had and perhaps you can answer the question, "Why would a blind man climb Mt. Everest?"
