Su questo libro:
Beyond the Eight Foot World is the remarkable, true, inspirational story about a twenty-four year old man whose life changed forever in an instant. The book chronicles a love story that strengthen through survival, perseverance, dignity and humor. You will find yourself cheering for our hero, Albert Plevier and his family. Albert Plevier?s journey into the eight foot world of the blind began on October 1, 1974 when he stood frozen in shock, disbelief and fear as concentrated sodium hydroxide spiraled toward his unprotected face and upper body. Time stopped and then it hit. The liquid powered by the motor churned this caustic chemical turning his feet into springs. Suddenly, this father, husband and chemical engineer was blown back onto his left side and positioned between two metal drums and a pipe vise. The force of the liquid kept him pinned. He was burning, he was melting and the chemical enacting its revenge. It was dissolving the very man whose job description required him to dissolve it. One week later he woke up disoriented in his hospital bed as he began to regain periods of consciousness. He couldn?t understand why, in his dreams, the coat he tried to pull tight around him could not stop the biting wind that cut through it. It pricked him, feeling first like hot needles and then indescribable pain. He could smell his burning flesh, while the horror jolted him from his drug induced oblivion. He heard himself scream and could not stop until more pain medication took effect. Beyond the Eight Foot World marks the first in a series of his three memoirs: The Beginning.
