Jonathan Corbet

Many years ago, my father set out to create a book that would help new spinal-cord-injury victims come to terms with (and love) their new life. The result, called Options, was widely distributed in rehabilitation centers for years and helped thousands of people before finally going out of print.

Inspired by the creation of the Full Circle film, which quotes extensively from the book, we have been working to bring Options back. Now, we're happy to say that Options is available, under the Creative Commons SA 4.0 license, in a number of forms. Enjoy!

As an aside, I have to say that the tools for scanning and OCR work have gotten pretty good. All of this was made possible by SANE, unpaper, tesseract, Sphinx, and surely some other tools I'm forgetting now.
