Anna Meares wrote: Kieran Modra: The Way I See It is a fantastic read, which not only highlights the bravery and resilience of a boy going blind, but simultaneously traces the history and rise in popularity of the Paralympics and the progress in human understanding of vision impairment and what can be achieved with a positive can-do attitude. The author clearly enjoys delving into many aspects of cycling. Every cyclist, no every Australian needs to read this book to enjoy what it means to represent this wonderful country. Kieran's story is an emotional roller-coaster and written with great sensitivity. The reader emerges with a deeper understanding of disability and a reminder of the power of the human spirit. A wonderful book about an extraordinary Australian athlete.
