Blindness for Beginners


Maribel and I compared notes about living with visual impairment when we cooked together in her Melbourne home and she gave me her top tips for surviving blindness

Now she has published her latest book, “Blindness for Beginners”, to share her knowledge and experience with anyone facing the life-changing impact of sight loss.  Maribel reflects on her own experiences, how she made the adjustments to a different way of life and offers masses of sound practical advice.  Her own positive personality and sense of humour shine through.

And you don’t have to be visually impaired to get the best from her book: much of Maribel’s insight, wisdom and determination to make the very best of life applies to everyone.  Her own story  is full of triumphs, joy and fun.   She has already been featured on Australian TV and radio while writing regularly for the American blind community.

“Blindness for Beginners” by Maribel Steel is available through Amazon and she is working on the audio version that will soon be available through Audible.
