Do You See What I See?
Memoirs of a Blind Biker
by Russell Targ
Russell Targ has been visually handicapped since childhood and yet he has performed groundbreaking research in lasers and optics. He is grounded in the world of science and yet co-created the Cold War spy program that became the real X-Files--the CIA and NASA-sponsored work in "remote viewing" that has only recently been declassified.
Targ's memoir also reads like a cultural history of the last half of the twentieth century. He meets and befriends--and tells wonderful anecdotes about--such people as Alan Greenspan, Ayn Rand, and Alan Alda, among others, including his brother-in-law, chess champion Bobby Fisher.
Do You See What I See? is the remarkable story of a visually impaired physicist who sees beyond perception to help readers find meaning and joy.
