Daniel on 60 minutesLast month I included a blog post on an autobiographical book by Daniel Tammet; he is a unique 27 year old Autistic Savant living in England. (Born on a Blue Day) He seems to have a normal functioning personality and understands the curiosity people have with his unique talents. Most who here him have an interest in how his mind works. As an articulate man, he has given a few interviews to scientists, doctors and journalists, one this past summer with the CBS’s “60 Minutes.” It aired this past weekend and is available on the “60 Minutes” website. For me, it helped put a face and voice to Daniel’s interesting book.
