From the Back Cover
Synaesthesia is a condition in which a stimulus in one sensory modality automatically triggers a perceptual experience in another. For example, on hearing a sound, the person immediately sees a color. How does this happen? Is it a real phenomenon? Why do some people develop this condition and not others? And might synaesthesia unlock important clues about the organization of the normal brain?
This volume brings together what is known about this fascinating neurological condition. The above questions, and new issues arising from the recent wave of cognitive neuroscientific research into synaesthesia, are debated in a series of chapters by leading authorities in the field. The book will be of great interest to researchers and students in the cognitive neurosciences, and is intended to spark further investigation into this relatively neglected, extraordinary phenomenon.

It is probably the best introductory book to Synaesthesia that I've come across, and is well worth a read.

All in all, this book is great if you're looking to expand your vocabulary a little (a little bit of scientific talk, but not too much to be confusing), and excellent if you're curious about an interesting subject like Synaesthesia. I highly recommend this book.
