Reviews

"As miracles go, it's hard to beat making the blind see. Yet that's exactly what the eye surgeon Dr. Geoffrey Tabin can do. He services poor people in the developing world who have developed cataracts--a clouding of the lens of the eye that is the world's leading cause of blindness. . . . Second Suns is a hopeful work, a profile of two doctors who have dedicated their lives to bringing light to those in darkness."--Time

"A compelling and inspiring book . . . Second Suns portrays heroic health care delivered under harrowing conditions: Ruit and his teams carry their equipment on multi-day treks up steep mountain trails, sometimes hiking at night with flashlights or head lamps, to reach settlements where they typically spend several days operating on hundreds of villagers in makeshift surgical theaters."--Washington Post "Second Suns should be required reading for anybody with an interest in humanitarian philanthropy--or, for that matter, a desire to feel a little better about the world."--Outside "A detailed, heartfelt account of the work of [two] dedicated pioneers."--Kirkus Reviews "I found myself completely captivated and fascinated by the story of two doctors, [Tabin and Ruit] who, through a series of mountaineering expeditions (among many other exploits) made it their life's mission to eradicate curable and preventable blindness in the underdeveloped world within their lifetimes."--Vail Daily
