EMBRACING THE WIDE SKY A Tour Across the Horizons of the Mind

by | Read by John Keating

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Daniel Tammet's personal inquiry into mental function and cutting-edge neuroscience champions the idea that autism is a difference, not a disease. Tammet—a noted autistic savant—describes his own vivid reaction to numbers. The focus of his work, however, is his belief that autism results from mental “hyperconnectivity,” a physiological state that brings unique abilities as well as disabilities. Tammet accentuates the positive. This is not a memoir, like Tammet's earlier work, BORN ON A BLUE DAY. John Keating’s clear, slow, very British narration helps the listener absorb Tammet's often-complex and occasionally disjointed material. Still, this audiobook can be a challenge to the casual listener. F.C. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2009]
