Chapter 4 "Flying High"

Mr. Brady was soon back doing all his regular activities, even those that one might assume to be dangerous, if not impossible, for someone without the use of both eyes.

"I flew anyway--partly to find out how I'd do at it and partly because it's in my blood. In many ways, I found it easier than driving, and I had no trouble with making the distance judgments that are required for landing and other maneuvers." (pg. 12)

The adaptation was not seamless, however; it required extra effort and an increased sense of awareness. But ultimately, the loss of his eye was not a significant hindrance.

"But if I sometimes regarded my new condition as a damned nuisance, I never considered it a handicap--in my career, in my hobbies, or in my personal life." (pg. 13)
