MediaMath and Eyes Wide Open

MediaMath and Eyes Wide Open

“Isaac artfully exposes the very real intersection of our fear of failure with the conscious decision to take responsibility over our outcomes. The fundamental value of questioning the reality that surrounds us, which Isaac masterfully weaves throughout his narrative, is a core pillar that has driven much of the innovation at MediaMath over the past 10 years. I am truly moved by Isaac’s journey and am excited to live Eyes Wide Open. I invite you to fearlessly join me in this adventure as I look forward to a bright future together!”

CEO, MediaMath

In Eyes Wide Open, Isaac Lidsky explains the powerful insight that enabled him to achieve his most ambitious dreams despite losing his sight to a blinding disease: it isn’t external circumstances, but how we perceive and respond to them, that governs our reality.

Eyes Wide Open is not about sight or blindness, it is about vision. Our perspectives are limited by our past experiences, biases, and emotions. Lidsky shows us how to confront paralyzing fears, challenge our own assumptions and faulty leaps of logic, silence our inner critic, harness our strength, and live with open hearts and minds. In sharing his hard-won insights, Lidsky shows us how we too can confront life’s trials with initiative, humor, and grace—and an empowering, new vision.

Because of his exceptional experiences, Isaac has much to teach readers about his practical yet expansive approach to life. They will greatly benefit from his book.
