    I first read about Helen Keller when I was in school. This short book provides a concise biography of her life

    “Helen Keller was more than an encouraging story about overcoming handicaps, more than a poster child for the education of the deafblind.” “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” “Helen Keller’s life, lived in the dark of blindness, sends a ray of hope and inspiration that has brightened the lives of millions.” Part of this book was particularly interesting that details the struggle and triumph of Helen Keller along with he “Helen Keller was more than an encouraging story about overcoming handicaps, more than a poster child for the education of the deafblind.” “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” “Helen Keller’s life, lived in the dark of blindness, sends a ray of hope and inspiration that has brightened the lives of millions.” Part of this book was particularly interesting that details the struggle and triumph of Helen Keller along with her teacher, Anne Sullivan. I liked how when no one seemed able to reach the frustrated and often violent child, Anne had the patience to break through the barriers allowing Helen to communicate and understand the world around her. However, learning about a lot of the immoral views of Helen Keller (pro-abortion and pro-euthanasia of mentally handicapped babies) coupled with staunch militant socialist views was troubling to learn. Even the fact that she thought creation was a myth. This book definitely stripped down her life to all the pretty and un-pretty parts. But all in all, the things she was able to accomplish was remarkable.

    This is a short biography of Helen Keller. Most everyone knows the story of the beginning of her life. How she was deaf and blind and how a teacher, Anne Sullivan, came into her life and began the process of teaching her to read and open herself to the world outside of herself. That was all covered in the play and movie, The Miracle Worker. But for most of us, other than a few inspiring quotes attributed to her, that's all we know of Ms Keller. That's unfortunate. She was a champion of not only This is a short biography of Helen Keller. Most everyone knows the story of the beginning of her life. How she was deaf and blind and how a teacher, Anne Sullivan, came into her life and began the process of teaching her to read and open herself to the world outside of herself. That was all covered in the play and movie, The Miracle Worker. But for most of us, other than a few inspiring quotes attributed to her, that's all we know of Ms Keller. That's unfortunate. She was a champion of not only the handicapped of all kinds, she was a champion of all repressed peoples. This led her to a deep dedication to Socialist philosophies, of which she became a spokesperson. She was also a founding member of the ACLU. This book doesn't go into a lot of depth on any subject, but it hits on enough highlights of Keller's life that make it well worth reading.

    Disturbing and well-written. There is a whole lot more to her than I knew. I knew the movie with she and Anne. HK was mean and had a different perspective on politics. Her work ethic, and those who dedicated their lives to her worked equally as hard. This is a good read. Not for her disabilities, but for her stamina.

    This is an excellent biography. I thought I knew a lot about Helen Keller (having studied her in grade school and also I have seen the movie, 'The Miracle Worker," but this biography is highly informative and I learned a lot. It is interesting that the message left to future generations about Helen Keller is about how she overcame her disabilities and not the message Helen so passionately wanted to make in regards to socialism and human rights.

I was very moved to learn about Helen's lifelong friends and the woman that traveled with her and helped her to their death. This is an excellent read that I highly recommend.

    Much I didn’t know about Helen Keller This is a very informative biography of Ms Keller. I did not know the vast extend of her learning and admire how she accomplished what most people could never accomplish themselves and amazingly she did it without eyesight or hearing. However, I found her radical socialism hypocritical since she benefited over and over from the goodness of capitalism. Sadly, her vision of a utopia where all are loving equal members of society will only be realized by those wh Much I didn’t know about Helen Keller This is a very informative biography of Ms Keller.

However, I found her radical socialism hypocritical since she benefited over and over from the goodness of capitalism. Sadly, her vision of a utopia where all are loving equal members of society will only be realized by those whose reward is in heaven, a place she will never know because she chose to reject the only access to it.

    Beyond The Superficial This short biography not only tells the commonly known part of Helen Keller’s life journey as a deaf and blind woman, it also tells the story of Keller’s political activism and financial challenges as an adult. Her legacy is more complex than I realized, and this quick read gives you a high level view of her fascinating journey. A good read.

    Real successes and hidden truths. We all have heard of Helen Keller and her victory of overcoming her disability of both blindness and deafness. This, however, is an eye opener. We learn of her relationship with Anne Sullivan, of her education, of her political beliefs, her travels, the many books and articles she’d written. And, many other interesting parts of her life.

    Impressed I literally knew nothing about Helen Keller before this. I got carried into her story as though in a boat amongst the waves. I found her to be so much more than what I expected. I have to point out an error that really bothered me, though. Please don't use the word numberless when you really mean numerous. It made me itch every time I saw it.

    Not only accurate but read within an hour! I loved the fact that this book went beyond her childhood difficulties. Helen Keller true story was written in all its glory. It advises of her true political view points and why she so strongly believed in them. It is a great read!

    Another great read Once again quick glimpse into Helen's incredible life that is an inspiration for so many. I took away from this read to never give up just because you have a disability. Be optimistic in spite of bad times. Great read over all. Another great read Once again quick glimpse into Helen's incredible life that is an inspiration for so many.

    Liberal He ended up talking about her liberal politics almost as much as her life when the average reader I am imagining wants to know more about her and less about her beliefs which are obvious that he probably cherry picked

    Fascinating! Reading this book revealed a more complete understanding of this fascinating woman. Although, I do not agree with everything she did, I can appreciate her drive.

    Good Great read But due to its compactness too many events are crumpled together. They feel like mundane facts at times
