Overview

New Edition June 2013. Many people have known for a long time that the life story of the author, celebrity and performer of intellectual feats Daniel Tammet which has been told countless times in books, television and journal papers is incomplete in ways that matter and questionable in too many ways to count. Let Lili Marlene take you by the hand and show you the alternative story hiding in plain sight. Learn about the surprising role of the PR industry in the science of neuropsychology. With her meticulous eye for detail Lili reviews the scientific literature, popular media, journalistic coverage and statistical data pertinent to Daniel Tammet (previously named Daniel Corney). Is Daniel Tammet a trained memory sportsman and showman, or a natural savant? Is he impaired in his ability to read and recognize faces, as claimed? Is Tammet's "diagnosis" of synaesthesia beyond question? Does another eccentric British memory feat performer have a greater claim to fame?

Meet the Author

Lili Marlene is not my real name. I live in Australia. I have an applied science degree and have also studied psychology and philosophy. I've worked in a variety of occupations and positions but by far my most important and interesting job to date has been as a mother. I enjoy many different types of synaesthesia. There are few people whose company I enjoy more than my own, and I've been a loner for as long as I can remember.
