Product description

Product Description

The life of Dr Scott Hollier is not what you’d call typical. He is well-educated, has a good job, is a husband and father, is legally blind, loves computers and gadgets, goes to church, and enjoys travel, spending time with friends and following his favourite football team. For most people, the atypical part of this description will be ‘legally blind’, but from Scott’s perspective, it’s his traitorous support of a football team outside his home state of Western Australia that makes him stand out from the crowd.

For people with disabilities, everything listed above should be typical, yet the pursuit of education, embracing the benefits of technology, and finding a good job and a partner in life can be challenging for many. While Scott can relate to that due to the degenerative eye condition that has nearly extinguished his sight, his story is not about what society should do to help him, but rather what a person with a disability can do to give back to a joyous, generous world.

Outrunning the Night is a memoir with a purpose. Its aim is to provide support to disadvantaged people – and the people supporting them. It’s not about anyone reaching the pinnacle of sporting achievement or possessing a brilliant mind. Instead, it’s a celebration of life and its possibilities. It shows that making it in this world is not about climbing Everest, but overcoming the little things to succeed in everyday life.

About the Author

The professional achievements of Dr Scott Hollier relate to his work as as specialist advisor in the field of digital accessibility and is the author of the book 'Outrunning the Night: a life journey of disability, determination and joy'. With a Ph.D. in Internet Studies and project management experience across the not-for-profit, corporate and government sectors, Scott is an internationally-recognised researcher and speaker. While his commitment to supporting the needs of people with disabilities is well recognised, it's his other pursuits that often highlight his ability to overcome the little things to achieve the everyday things as a legally blind person - be it retro gaming, giving back to the community, running with the Olympic Torch or travelling to all seven continents. Scott's combination of determination, the pursuit of education and the power of current and emerging technologies puts him in a unique position to provide guidance on how a person with a disability can not only enjoy life but give back to a joyous, generous world.
