EVERY WORD IS A BIRD WE TEACH TO SING Encounters with the Mysteries and Meanings of Language

by | Read by Daniel Tammet

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Daniel Tammet's distinct way of thinking provides unique insights into various topics relating to language in this collection of essays. The author, an autistic savant with a gift for language and numbers, delves deeply into these areas, exploring them from angles different from the neurotypical perspective. However, his narration detracts from the essays themselves. His pace often seems ponderous as he delivers long lists of words with peculiar enunciation. While it's evident that Tammet is intensely interested in his subject matter, his presentation does not translate well to the audio format.
