Overview

Discover how to turn differences into opportunities with an accessibility expert's worldwide search for belonging.

After a diagnosis of a degenerative eye disease, John Samuel's life-and his chance at success-started to vanish.

In a world systemically unequipped for accessibility, disability inclusion is often left out of conversations about diversity. For people with disabilities, it can feel impossible to adapt and thrive when you're already set up for failure.

A more accessible world is possible-when we see the amazing opportunities in our differences.

From traveling the world and hiking mountains to finding love and raising a family, Don't Ask the Blind Guy for Directions shares Ablr CEO and cofounder John Samuel's inspirational journey against his inevitable blindness as he searched for acceptance. A powerful story for both professionals with disabilities and individuals working to create an inclusive culture at any organization, this memoir will empower you to accept yourself and others, break down barriers, and rebuild a world where everyone belongs.
