Born on a Blue Day–Insight into Autistic Savants

Born On A Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Autistic Savant Born On A Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Autistic Savant by Daniel Tammet

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What an extraordinary book! I read it to understand how those who don’t think within the modern world’s boxes might integrate facts and come to conclusions and found a story I had to keep on my desk so his thoughts were close. Daniel Tammet’s ability to explain what is going on in his amazing brain makes for a fascinating tale. His story of recounting Pi to the 22,000+ place is a must-read for all the world’s teachers and leaders. His need to turn numbers into pictures and landscapes makes the argument for diversity and tolerance for those who think and act differently. The patience his teachers showed for his unique approach to problem solving should remind all of us, especially those in the trenches, that there are many ways to an end.

Thank you, Daniel!
