Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law

How could you not grab a memoir with that subtitle?! And, Haben was a quick read that ran in short chapters and moved along at a good clip. While it had a slow start, about a third of the way through, I couldn’t put it down. It’s a glimpse into all the barriers for individuals with disabilities. Before I read this book, I might have said that Haben and what she has done is remarkable. After having read it, I changed my mindset to all the ways that the rest of us make her life, and the lives of others like her, more difficult. What an eye-opening and engaging read. I highly recommend.
