Publisher's Summary

Blindness became Captain Scotty Smiley’s journey of supreme testing. As he lay helpless in the hospital, he resented the theft of his dreams, but with his wife’s love and the support of family and friends, Scotty’s response became God’s transforming moment. Since the moment he forced his way through nurses and cords to take a simple shower, he has climbed Mount Rainier, won an ESPY Award, surfed, skydived, become a father, earned an MBA from Duke, taught leadership at West Point, and won the MacArthur Leadership Award.
Scotty and Tiffany Smiley have lived out a faith so real that it will inspire you to question your own doubts, push you to serve something bigger than yourself, and encourage you to cling to a Hope Unseen.

A great biography about a great guy!

The story was well-written, and never got boring (as biographies sometimes can). What I liked most about Captain Smiley's story was his humility. He never came across as a guy who felt like the army, or people in general, owed him anything. He suffered a huge tragedy in the war, and since that time he has led an amazing, victorious life, but he never believed people owed it to him, or that he deserved the acolades. I was extremely impressed by Captain Smiley's life, and his story.

Perseverance with a little help

This is a great story about a wounded vet hat overcame his disability through perseverance. Being recently blind, I can relate to the drive and the push from my family and parent's influence. I recommend this book to all of those that think that it can't be worse.
