    In his latest book, Daniel Tammet, the?mathematical savant and bestselling author?of Born on a Blue Day (Hodder. PB. $22.99),?presents us with an engaging and personal?exploration of what numbers can teach us?about our lives and minds. Using anecdotes?and everyday examples to prove his point, this?Rain Man–ish character shares his delight?in the way numbers, fractions and equations?underpin all our lives. Inspired by random?facts and events, including the complexity of?snowflakes, Anne Boleyn’s sixth finger and his?mother’s unpredictable behaviour, he explores?questions such as why time seems to speed?up as we age, whether there is such a thing?as an average person and how we can make?sense of those we love.
