Présentation de l'éditeur
Daniel sees numbers as shapes, colours and textures and can perform extraordinary maths in his head. He can also learn to speak a language fluently from scratch in a week. He has Savant Syndrome, an extremely rare form of Asperger's that gives him almost unimaginable mental powers, much like the Rain Man portrayed by Dustin Hoffman.
Daniel has a compulsive need for order and routine - he eats exactly 45 grams of porridge for breakfast and cannot leave the house without counting the number of items of clothing he's wearing. If he gets stressed or unhappy he closes his eyes and counts. But in some ways Daniel is not at all like the Rain Man. He is virtually unique amongst people who have severe autistic disorders in being capable of living a fully independent life. It is his incredible self-awareness and ability to communicate what it feels like to live in a unique way that makes his story so powerful.
Touching as well as fascinating, Born On A Blue Day explores what it's like to be special and in so doing gives us an insight into what makes us all human - our minds.--Ce texte fait référence à l'édition MP3 CD.

Meilleurs commentaires des clients
After reading his book, I thought this is a great lecture. I've re-learned that other people might be different, that some people have the right to act and behave and to think an other way. Yes, to pay attention to the difference and to respect people.
The main thing of Daniel is that he is TRUE. He never try to hide or to play or to disguise the truth. His truth. He is inside and outside of himself. As if he were an alien coming from nowhere.
On top of that, he get successful and that makes this person even more interesting. I felt nearly disappointed at the end of the book, but things must finish.
Thank you Daniel for this great book.
Le livre se lit aussi très facilement, - comme un roman.
