From the foreword by Ray Gottlieb, O.D., Ph.D.: "I’m pleased to see that Esther Joy van der Werf has written Read Without Glasses at Any Age now. Its publication brings a fresh look at Bates’ work at a time when it’s really needed. Her book gets straight to the point. It is free of fluff and true to Bates’ approach and includes plenty of his original writing about his own and his patients’ experiences of learning to see small print without artificial aids. Esther’s little book takes just an hour or two to read but success comes by learning, doing and staying with the process until it becomes part of who you are, all day, every day for the rest of your life."
