Detailed item info

Description
'I was born on 31 January 1979 - a Wednesday. I kw it was a Wednesday, becasue the date is blue in my mind and Wednesdays are always blue, like the number nine or the sound of loud voices arguing.' Like the character Hoffman portrayed, he can perform extraordinary maths in his head, sees numbers as shapes, colours, textures and motions, and can learn to speak a language fluently from scratch in three days. He also has a compulsive need for order and routine. He eats exactly 45 grams of porridge for breakfast and cant leave the house without counting the number of items of clothing he's wearing. If he gets stressed or unhappy he closes his eyes and counts. But in some ways Daniel is t all like the Rain Man. He is virtually unique amongst people who have severe autisitic disorders in being capable of living a fully-functioning, independent life. It is this incredible self-awareness and ability to communicate what it feels like to live in a totally extraordinary way that makes BORN ON A BLUE DAY so powerful.

About Us

We're a boutique Sydney online business specialising in preloved non-fiction books. We have eye for stuff that is out of print and hard to find, stuff that appeals to special interests, and stuff that is just dang cool or left of field. Army of Nerds is me (Shawn), with lots of help from my not-really-my-wife (Alison), and an imaginary primate on work experience (Dr Pogo Baboon). Despite some shabby attempts at humour we offer professional, fast and friendly service.

We treat our buyers the way we like to be treated when we buy stuff on eBay (we buy lots too!). We have been selling on ebay full time since 2005, folks seem to like what we do. We enjoy eBay, it's a lot of work but a nice life. Please communicate if you have any hassles, we are fair and friendly folks, anything can be sorted with a smile and a keyboard. And please don't feed the baboon.
