From one of Hollywood’s most beloved comedians to a homicide detective, a pioneering surgeon to a bestselling novelist, Nine Minds delves into the unique lived experiences of nine neurodivergent men and women. Each is remarkable in their field and each is challenging how the world sees those on the spectrum.

Exploding the tired stereotypes of autism, Daniel Tammet – an autistic savant himself – reaches across the divides of age, gender, sexuality and nationality to draw out the inner worlds of his subjects. Portraying a range of experiences as richly diverse as the spectrum itself, this illuminating, life-affirming work of narrative nonfiction celebrates the power and beauty of the neurodivergent mind, and the daring freedom with which
these people have built their lives.
