This is a very interesting book for those interested in human behaviour. The author gives the reader a view of his mind - how he thinks and behaves, and why he reacts to circumstances and events in the way he does.
In certain instances he is a bit detailed (e.g. a card game that he devised), but this is how he thinks.
A very interesting read, which I highly recommend.
is piqued among thinkers, readers, and academicians about
savants---what goes on in their heads, and how do they arrive at ideas
and solutions which evade the rest of us? Born on a Blue Day gives
great insight into these mysteries from the personal point of view of
Daniel Tammet, an autistic savant living in England. He is uniquely
able to describe what he "sees" as he thinks about numbers and mentally
completes mathematical calculations. His life story is engagingly told
with occasional glimpses into the difficulties he encounters in social
situations. It was especially revealing to follow Daniel's fascination
with pi that led to his memorization and recitation of its digits to
22,514 places, setting the European record. In the book he includes
illustrations of the groupings of color he sees in his head which help him
recall the order of the digits of pi. The very human side of Daniel is
refreshing as he describes his best friend, intellectual challenges,
and how he is making a living via the internet. This book will make you
feel better about our world and the people in it.
I found the book interesting as it spoke to anthropological origns of thought in the feeling and textures, synesthesias, created by sensory data as this man tries to integrate and relate to the world at large. There is a gestalt found in between the categories of his external ordering and categorization that reveals how he know s and feels.
