9780446670685: Man Who Tasted Shapes: A Bizarre Med. Mystery Offers Rev. Insight Into Emotions &

In this top-seller, Dr. Richard E. Cytowic explores the fascinating medical mystery known as "synesthesia"--a condition affecting one in 100,000 people for whom tastes have shapes, sounds have colors, and smells can be touched. "Appealing, suspenseful".--Publishers Weekly.

From the Publisher:

The Man Who Tasted Shapes brings us the solution to a bizarre medical mystery, and leads us to a new understanding of the human mind that turns our conventional notions about reason and emotion inside out.

From the Author:

I wrote the first English textbook on this fascinating merging of the senses in 1989. I'm happy to offer a less technical version to general readers in The Man Who Tasted Shapes, an account of my accidental meeting with Michael Watson that re-introduced today's neurologists to the ancient and puzzling phenomenon of synesthesia. In the ensuing years, scientists worldwide have begun exploring what this exceptional condition can reveal about how all human minds function.
