A NEW book aims to help change people’s attitudes towards disability so people see ability and not disability.
Mike Brace CBE DL has released his second book, ‘Don’t Ask Me, Ask the Dog!: The autobiography of Mike Brace CBE DL: Part 2’, on Amazon.
The book follows the publication of Mike’s first book, ‘Where There’s a Will’, in 1980.
Mike, who is visually impaired, is a founding member of Metro Blind Sport and former Paralympic Cross Country skier, among various other positions he holds.
Mike said the new book covered from when he was featured as the subject on the television show This Is Your Life in 1981, through to his social work career and setting up VISION 2020 UK.
“It also covers my sporting activities and my involvement with the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic bid, and my serving on the organising committee until 2009,” he said.
“The main focus, however, is attempting to tackle attitudes to disability and to change the focus to getting people to see ‘ability’ rather than ‘disability’.”
You can download ‘Don’t Ask Me, Ask the Dog’ in E Book format on Kindle or order it in print, or leave a review of the book at the Amazon website.
