Product description

Review

'A memoir of outstanding lucidity and charm' (The Sunday Times)

'You close BORN ON A BLUE DAY with a sense of profound admiration' (The Daily Mail)

'A charmingly precise, tenderly honest account' (The Daily Express)

'Remarkable' (Independent on Sunday)

'Admirably modest but affecting autobiography by a man blessed with incredible mental gifts but struggling with Asperger's' (The Sunday Times - top choice of books 'you really must read')

'So elegantly written... he tells his story dead straight' (Daily Telegraph)

'In BORN ON A BLUE DAY, both his difficulties and his awakening consciousness of himself and others are charted. The miracle is that he wrote it himself. It has a strange, quiet beauty' (Scotland on Sunday)

'Tammet's writing is eloquent and moving but always uncomplicated. And he succeeds in stripping away much of the misunderstanding and confusion that surrounds the unusual way autistic savants view the world' (Radio Times)

Book Description

A fascinating and touching memoir from real-life Rain Man, Daniel Tammet, who has the extremely rare condition Savant Syndrome
