“Stand Up or Sit Out: Memories and Musings of a Blind Wrestler, Runner, and All-Around Regular Guy”: a heart-touching story of the author’s life that will give the readers a reason to laugh and be sad as it will enlighten them about why things happen the way they do. “Stand Up or Sit Out: Memories and Musings of a Blind Wrestler, Runner, and All-Around Regular Guy” is the creation of published author Anthony R. Candela, a man who worked for more than forty years as a rehabilitation counselor who is interested in enhancing the success of blind persons who take mainstream coding classes and who wish to work in STEM fields.

Candela writes, “In this memoir, Anthony Candela, a self-described ‘all-around regular guy,’ traverses a lifetime of challenges. Some of these are accidents of birth, like his poor eyesight and slow trek to blindness, and some are of his own making, like choosing to compete as a scholar-athlete. Infused with lots of New Yorkana, a touch of California, and a few related historical references, this memoir conveys that in any environment, life does not always follow a prescribed course. Moreover, as humans, all of us are imperfect. This includes people with disabilities who are often thought of as transcendent beings, but who should also be regarded as ‘all-around regular guys.’ Just like the rest of the human race, they often strive imperfectly to get through life.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Anthony R. Candela’s new book is an enthralling real-life story that opens the minds of the readers to understand people with a sight impairment or other people with disabilities as an act of being a human.

With this purpose, Candela aims to open the hearts and minds of the readers for them to have a fuller appreciation of the ways people deal with challenges.
