I wish this book was available 15 years ago when I first realised that I was stereoblind and don't experience the world in the same way as other people. This book has answered so many mysteries for me - things no one ever bothered to explain to me, things I was too scared to ask and problems that I never thought were related to my vision - thank you Susan

I guess maybe I am just very, very lucky, but doing the brock string exercise for 10 minutes has made a massive difference to my eyesight. I am 38 years old and have basically only looked through 1 eye or the other alternately all my life. To be honest, most of the time it has not been a problem, but recently I started have serious issues because my eyes started swapping continuously (this used to only happen when tired) which would give me eye strain, headaches and even motion sickness! I went to the opticians and as usual nothing. In desperation I started googling, reading forums etc. and finally came across this book and the associated youtube videos. I decided to have a go with the brock string one night (just a piece of string, I didn't have the beads the first time) and the very next day I noticed the difference. I am definitely seeing in 3D, have far less eye strain, no headaches or motion sickness and my reading has massively improved. I am sure without all the articles and talks that susan barry has done over the years I would not have found what I was looking for on the internet. Why this has not been mentioned to me in over 30 years of going to opticians (including specialists in the hospital) in the UK is frankly unbelievable, surely it is always going to be worth a try?
The book itself is a good read, even if you haven't had similar issues, but if you have then it's a must read.

Having discovered, at the age of 47, that I am stereoblind I was keen to find out more about my condition. This is a facinating and informative book written in an easy going accessable style. There are copious notes and links to aid you in further reading around the subject and also the hope, should you choose to persue it, that it is not always too late to achieve stereo vision.
