An extraordinary autobiography by an astounding young man detailing his unique talents, readers will be amazed and affected by Daniel Tammet’s life and achievements. Although diagnosed with a severe autism disorder, Tammet is able to live a normal life and express what’s going on in his head. He visualizes numbers as shapes, colors, and textures, and performs complex calculations in is head. In 2004, he set a record by memorizing and reciting more than 22,000 digits of pi. Like Dustin offman in Rain Man, Tammet has savant syndrome, which has gifted him with incredible mental abilities. Born on a Blue Day presents a profoundly positive view of autism and is more readable and relatable than John Elder Robison’s Look Me In the Eye.
