Publisher's Summary

Journalist Robert Kingett accepts a dare, one that at first seems simple: to adapt to his blindness without the Internet. This account is a cozy diary of battling with an FM radio, hooking up a landline phone, and the journey of adapting to a brand new way of living from someone who has never disconnected from the World Wide Web.

This is a great audio book. Especially at this time, I can't imagine everyday activity without the internet. I listened to this audiobook in one sitting

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I find it ironic that I am about to review this title on the Audible website. It was really a fun, witty, informational and really just an all around great listen. The author really does a great job catching the humor and irony in everyday life whether you are blind or not. Myself being blind this really was interesting to me and I could really relate with the trials of not having the internet. It is written in a journal style where each day the author attempts to accomplish something without using the internet. Some of these include finding out information about a company, solving a argument by asking Google, and even attending a job interview. let's not mention starting a new dating relationship without facebook... those were the days. This book also included some helpful hints whether intentional or not and even helped me remember some facts of life when you are blind. For instance, just because I cannot see someone does not mean they can't see me lol. I really enjoyed the piece on how us blind folks associate voice with how someone looks. I could not stop laughing during this part. #BlindfolksProblems for real. I cannot say enough great things about this book. The narration was really well done too. The tone and pacing was great. It really added emphasis to those scenes or stories that needed it. Just an amazing all around listen. ** I received this audiobook at no cost from Audiobook Worm Promotions, gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it **
