Biography; Deaf-Blindness


Woody Livingston earned a college degree, had a short but successful stint as a prizefighter, traveled to Russia three times during the height of the Cold War, played hockey for charity with the Washington Capitals, and flew a small airplane ... all while being completely deaf and going blind. Before turning thirty, Woody -- struggling to live in the hearing and sighted world because of discrimination he encountered by potential employers -- is homeless, jobless, and at the end of his rope wondering whether life is worth living.
