Summary
No one sees the world the way Jason Padgett does. The startling fact here is that he wasn't born this way. Twelve years ago, he had never made it past pre-algebra, but then a violent mugging forever altered the way his brain works, giving him unique gifts. The first documented case of acquired savant syndrome with mathematical synesthesia, Jason Padgett is a medical marvel. Along the way he fell in love, found joy in numbers, and spent plenty of time having his head examined
