Following up his critically acclaimed memoir, Born on a Blue Sky , Tammet offers this insightful analysis of autism that sheds light on the differences between savant and nonsavant minds.

Gerroll reads with a concentrated tone that flows smoothly and effortlessly; he fully understands the material he is presenting both in literal and emotional terms, delivering Tammet’s rich prose with appealing ease.
