Two very different doctors; one an American; the other, a Nepalese: Thanks to this pair of talented ophthalmologists, tens of thousands of poor men, women, and children in Nepal are now seeing a world that was once fading away. When Geoffrey Tabin and Sanduk Ruit founded the Himalayan Cataract Project in 1995, even they did not expect that it would restore sight to so many people at a cost so low. Even in the space of a single sentence, this book, written by Three Cups of Tea co-author David Oliver Relin, can grab and hold you: "The life expectancy of blind people in the developing world is less than one-third that of people with sight." Buyer's pick.
