Well written and hilarious. Knighton has a sense of humour about his disability that doesn't make you feel sorry for him but almost proud of his over coming obsticles.

Knighton has a great sense of humor, and his style is wonderful. His content, however, leaves something to be desired. Throughout the book are comments about how blind people are sloppy, closed off from the world, and lacking in a full and enriching life. There are plenty of blind people who are capable of doing much more than Knighton implies.

I recommend this book only for Knighton's humor. As for it being a record of a blind person's life experience, "Cockeyed" is inaccurate.
