Ken Brandt, American-Australian author of the upcoming book “Positive Vision”, writes about an upbeat exploration of how he manages life with poor vision. The book is full of rollicking adventures, humorous incidents, and self-help tips, plus a few inspiring quotes and corny jokes. Lots of fun examples showing the bright sides of bad eyes.

Poor eyesight never impacted author Ken Brandt’s vision of what life could be. Whether galloping across the Montana range, exploring claustrophobic (and fiery!) caverns, chasing a thief through the streets of 1980s New York, or plunging from a plane, his adventures are sure to entertain. Complementing the adventures are amusing and relatable anecdotes demonstrating the advantages of poor eyesight. He says: "Enjoy the exciting escapades and interesting insights. Seeing the bright side makes life more fun for you and those around you."

Ken Brandt is donating 10% of his author's royalties from Positive Vision: Enjoying the Adventures and Advantages of Poor Eyesight (5% each) to Massachusetts Eye and Ear for eye research, and The Fred Hollows Foundation for ending avoidable blindness.

"Positive Vision: enjoying the adventures and advantages of poor eyesight" will be available to order from local bookstores and all major online booksellers, from 18 September.Visit for more information about the book and author. 

Prior to retiring and writing his book, Ken held senior management and management consulting positions in information technology and information security with firms and clients of all sizes in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.  Ken is an entertaining speaker and an amateur New Orleans style jazz trumpeter. He and his wife Judy Roberts Brandt have been married for over twenty years, lived most of their lives in New York City, and now live in Melbourne, Australia.
