My new book a new look at Daniel Tammet
I was wondering whether other forum members might find my newest book of interest. There is a most interesting story about the famous Daniel Tammet (formerly Daniel Corney) which has partly been told in the 2011 book Moonwalking with Einstein by Joshua Foer. My book goes further and looks at the scientific literature with an excruciatingly precise eye for detail. Daniel Tammet has been hailed all over the world as an autistic savant displaying genius ability in language learning, mathematics and memory, but it appears that every element of the Daniel Tammet legend can be or has been called into question.

Hello, Lili! I sometimes comment on your blog as Laura, and we have discussed Tammet before. As you know, I am fascinated by him and his story, as it is far more complicated than it may seem to an outsider.
