VIDBE-Q Volume 65 Issue 3 provides descriptions of monoculars and wearables in the fifth chapter, but there are no supporting images. If some images were provided in particular pages, it would have been beneficial for people with low vision or readers with vision to further explain the devices described. Another critique is that I noticed that similar topics are discussed in different chapters. For instance, the author wrote about hosting at home in the eighth and eleventh chapters; cooking was discussed in the third, fifth, and seventh chapters and issues related to the home environment were discussed both in the second and seventh chapters. A better organization could have allowed relevant topics to be discussed in the same chapter. Overall, this book has potential to be a valuable resource in the field of visual impairments. It focuses on practical, social, and personal recovery for people with visual impairments, and it is accessible for anyone to read. It provides information that allows the novice in the field of visual impairment to become knowledgeable, while promoting a positive, independent, assertive person if you try the author's suggestions. People with visual impairments, their families and friends, as well as professionals in the field of visual impairment or adult rehabilitation who want to learn about vision loss in adults will find this book full of practical strategies and suggestions.
