Born on a Blue DayIn January I mentioned reading Daniel Tammet’s book “Born on a Blue Day,” and a follow-up post about a 60-Minutes TV broadcast. I was intrigued to learn a little bit about how this relatively normal autistic savant thinks. In Daniel’s book, he tries to explain how he sees numbers and the challenges he faced growing up ‘different.’

I’ve loaned my copy of the book several times to people interested in reading it, and received several emails from people who have found my comments. One reader sent me a Google Video link from a program produced in the UK that I thought I would include here: The Boy With The Incredible Brain (47 min. 30 sec).
