really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read in November, 2006

Fascinating (non-fiction) study of people with different brain oddities (can't see color, a guy who is blind for most of his life and at 40 has to learn how to see, an autistic boy who memorizes buildings, etc.). Written by a neuropsychologist who tries to get in peoples' heads to learn how they experience the world.
