Description


Randy Pierce was on top of the world, 22 years old, fresh out of college and thriving at an excellent job. His promising future seemed certain. Then, in just two short and devastating weeks, an unexpected neurological disorder plunged him into blindness. Randy, believing his future had vanished in the blink of an eye, wondered, “How can my life have meaning now?”

Before he could fully answer, he had further to fall.
Blindness was far from the worst challenge he would face.

See You at the Summit is Randy’s uplifting personal account of his journey through adversity to accomplishment. This improbable tale of human resiliency follows Randy as he learns to pick up the pieces of his life while discovering the extreme love, devotion and bravery of his guide dogs. He climbs from his lowest point, persevering to historic achievements in hiking, winning a National Marathon Championship, and becoming a highly sought motivational speaker. Randy’s insightful vision will show you how our choices in responding to life’s challenges define us so much more than those challenges ever could and perhaps, how a blind man really can see! See You at the Summit is built upon an indomitable spirit inviting you to share in summits of success and reach your peak potential.

About the Author


Randy Pierce is a motivational speaker, educator, business man, hiker, runner, husband and dad to his well-loved dogs. He is also totally blind. For years, family, friends and, more recently, his audiences have been entreating him to write a book about his life and untypical approach to adversity. Randy’s nature is to use his stories to bring people together on journeys of adventure and discovery. One of Randy’s greatest joys in life is connecting with people and uniting groups for common goals. Born and raised in New Hampshire, Randy spent his early years fully sighted. His transition to total blindness is far from his greatest adventure. Randy’s passion for experience encouraged him to use adversity as a positive catalyst for growth and opportunity, resulting in such amazing adventures and honors as his earning his second-degree black belt; achieving historic hiking accomplishments in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, Africa’s highest peak (Mount Kilimanjaro), and Machu Picchu in the South American Andes; winning a national marathon championship and running three consecutive Boston Marathons; competing in Tough Mudder events; and being inducted as a fan into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. In 2010, Randy and his wife Tracy founded a 501(c)3 charity called 2020 Vision Quest, which funds crucial services for the visually impaired. Proceeds from their book “See You at the Summit” will be donated to this organization.
