EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

The astonishing true story of an average man transformed by one violent encounter

No one sees the world the way Jason Padgett does. Water pours from the faucet in crystalline patterns, each number has a distinct geometric shape, and fractal patterns emerge from the movement of tree branches and the swirl of cream in his coffee, revealing the mathematical patterns hidden in the objects around us.

The amazing thing is that Jason wasn’t born this way. Twelve years ago, he was an ordinary guy, a jock who loved to party and had never made it past pre-algebra in high school. One night, a vicious blow to the head in an altercation profoundly and permanently altered the way his brain works. Jason would eventually learn his injury had made him an acquired savant and synesthete, someone whose blended sense perception causes such strange effects as the ability to taste shapes, hear colours and see numbers as geometric objects. Suddenly, Jason saw the world in a completely different way. As the first documented case of acquired savant syndrome with his particular type of mathematical synesthesia, Padgett is a medical marvel.

Struck by Genius recounts how Padgett overcame enormous setbacks and embraced his transformed mind. Along the way he found love, discovered joy in numbers and spent plenty of time having his head examined. His fascinating and inspiring story of the abilities that potentially lie hidden within us all reveals how much we still have to learn about the wondrous potential of the human brain.
