"You are legally blind." With these four words Jim Hindman, renowned entrepreneur and founder of Jiffy Lube International, faced the biggest challenge of his life at age 57 when he was diagnosed with macular degeneration, an age-related progressive disease that leads, eventually, to blindness. Throughout his successful career, Hindman always met challenges head-on, but nothing prepared him for the impact of macular degeneration. Fearlessly embarking on a more than 20 year exploration with multiple physicians throughout the United States, Hindman refused to give up until he found a way back through the darkness; innovative new medical procedures and technologies ultimately restored his vision after he successfully underwent surgery for the implantable miniature telescope. In Was blind, but now I see, Hindman shares his remarkable journey to recovery, his setbacks, and dramatic achievements. Woven throughout his inspirational account is a rags-to-riches story featuring many of the lessons he learned as kid on the streets of Sioux City, shining shoes and selling newspapers, to become a self-made millionaire by 35. All proceeds will go to education, rehabilitation, and research for macular degeneration and low vision efforts.
