Packaged in a sparkling jewel case, the Audio CD edition of Learning to Cope with Sight Loss is a 75-minute, complete text recording from the 36-page booklet.

The Audio CD edition is recorded by four San Francisco Bay Area Broadcast Legends: Narrated by Don Mozley (CBS Radio and KCBS/74); the author's words read by director/writer/producer Ed Dudkowski (KPIX-TV, KRON-TV); and first-person stories read by Emmy award winning news anchor Cheryl Jennings (ABC 7/KGO TV) and Warren Weagant (ABC 7/KGO Radio and TV, and Command Productions, Sausalito, California).

Legally blind since 2003 from macular degeneration, author and former broadcaster William L. McGee chronicles his six weeks at the VA Western Blind Rehabilitation Center in Palo Alto, California where he resided with 30 other blinded or low vision veterans and together they learned how to cope with sight loss.
