About Dean Liguori:
In 2000 A.D., I experienced physical eye trauma to one eye resulting in an injury that was compounded by an erroneous medical prescription designed to treat the injury. The combined trauma and damage caused by the prescription drug resulted in severely limited vision in my injured eye.
Unable to accept the result of this injury, I embarked on a mission to overcome it. As a result of the damage I sustained, I had the opportunity to interact with accomplished doctors in many prestigious universities and institutions. I participated in events and seminars that only doctors were invited to and engaged in all available rehabilitation. I researched and sought all information, studies, and associated work on vision impairment and restoration that I could get my hands on.
One important observation of this journey was the adherence of most of the vision industry to the medical model of healing. This failed model takes a general approach to correcting vision problems by mitigating symptoms without offering any solution to the underlying disorder.
One important discovery of this journey was the field of sequencing neurosensory and neuromuscular activities that are individually prescribed to develop, rehabilitate, and enhance visual skills and information processing. This field is also referred to as vision therapy.
My journey resulted in the restoration of my vision. The restoration of the vision of others that I shared these concepts with motivated me to develop my “Vision Therapy System” that I now share with you in this book.
What inspires you to write?
Sharing learned knowledge to help others overcome challenges.
Tell us about your writing process.
I begin with outlining an idea or concepts and add detail to them. As these unfold, I better organize them in a manner and order that I believe would make sense to the reader. In the particular case of this book, more detail, expansion of ideas, and work from other writings were brought into this work over the period of many years which made the final organization and editing more challenging.
What advice would you give other writers?
Write on something that you are passionate about. Do not chose a topic for purposes of generating revenue or you will not be happy in your work and any readers of your work will be able to determine it.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I have approached publishers in the past on different works and did not need the additional work or stress to interview and hire one. I believe that the opportunity is present for self publishers to replace the duties of a publisher to an extent. This is especially true for popular writers.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It will continue to evolve as consumers’ demands are better expressed and understood. The internet has shown that it can squeeze out middlemen in a way that intelligent producers can capitalize on.
What genres do you write?: non fiction
What formats are your books in?: eBook
