Hello Darkness, My Old Friend : How Daring Dreams and Unyielding Friendship Turned One Man's Blindness Into an Extraordinary Vision for Life
by Sanford D. Greenberg and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Art Garfunkel




Overview -
As seen on the Today Show and as featured in People Magazine

The remarkable and inspiring story of a Columbia undergrad from a poor Jewish family who, after losing his eyesight to disease during his junior year, finds the power to break through the darkness and fulfill his vision for a life of great professional success and distinguished public service.

It's a bitterly cold February in 1961, and Sandy Greenberg lies in a hospital bed in Detroit, newly blind. A junior at Columbia University from a Jewish family that struggled to stay above the poverty line, Sandy had just started to see the world open up to him. Now, instead of his plans for a bright future--Harvard Law and politics--Sandy faces a new reality, one defined by a cane or companion dog, menial work, and a cautious path through life.

But that's not how this story ends.

In the depth of his new darkness, Sandy faces a choice--play it "safe" by staying in his native Buffalo or return to Columbia to pursue his dreams. With the loving devotion of his girlfriend (and now wife) Sue and the selflessness of best friends Art Garfunkel and Jerry Speyer, Sandy endures unimaginable adversity while forging a life of exceptional achievement.

From his time in the White House working for President Lyndon B. Johnson to his graduate studies at Harvard and Oxford under luminaries such as Archibald Cox, Sir Arthur Goodhart, and Samuel Huntington, and through the guidance of his invaluable mentor David Rockefeller, Sandy fills his life and the lives of those around him with a radiant light of philanthropy, entrepreneurship, art, and innovation.
