Now Reading: Daniel Tammet – Born on a Blue Day

Posted on

daniel-tammet-born-on-a-blue-day-e1330617744852This book is the first of four books that my cousin Hannah lent me when she found out about my challenge to read 100 books in a year. I love reading books that other people suggest – they are usually books that you wouldn’t think of reading but most of the time you find something great.

This one looks really good, it’s the memoir of Daniel Tammet , a man with Savant Syndrome (an extremely rare form of Aspergers) who according to the back of the book, sees numbers as shapes, colours and textures and can perform extraordinary maths in his head.

It sounds intriguing, and the reviews I’ve read of it make me think it’s going to be a very good read – definitely something to get me thinking.
