Finished Daniel Tammet’s autobiography Born on a Blue Day (2006). He’s got both Asperger’s syndrome and synesthesia. The former is a mild form of autism (so They say, but nothing about it sounds “mild” to me), and the latter makes him associate colors and other physical attributes to numbers (“one” is a bright white light). The volume starts with more on the synesthesia, and ends with more on his life. I kept wondering what the synesthesia is like in his adult life, as I couldn’t find much on that.
Anyway, it’s quite readable if you’re interested.
