            How can we explain the remarkable human capacity to create and innovate? Previous attempts at uncovering this unique ability have overlooked a big clue to our human nature, by looking at the typical population instead of shining a spotlight on those at the extreme. This book offe...rs a refreshing study on autism, giving a unique perspective on the evolution of human invention. By linking the remarkable history of this singular human trait with the underrepresented and often misunderstood image of an autistic person, socially isolated, obsessively spotting patterns and collecting facts, this book offers the unique chance to appreciate both autism and invention in a new light, and as causes for celebration.

            The Light Ages: A Medieval Journey of Discovery

            The Middle Ages were a time of wonder. They gave us the first universities, the first eyeglasses and the first mechanical clocks as medieval thinkers sought to understand the world around them, from the passing of the seasons to the stars in the sky. In this book, we walk the pat...h of medieval science with a real-life guide, a fourteenth-century monk named John of Westwyk - inventor, astrologer, crusader - who was educated in England's grandest monastery and exiled to a clifftop priory. Following the traces of his life, we learn to see the natural world through Brother John's eyes: navigating by the stars, multiplying Roman numerals, curing disease, and telling the time with an astrolabe. We travel the length and breadth of England, from Saint Albans to Tynemouth, and venture far beyond the shores of Britain. On our way, we encounter a remarkable cast of characters: the clock-building English abbot with leprosy, the French craftsman-turned-spy, and the Persian polymath who founded the world's most advanced observatory. An enthralling story of the struggles and successes of an ordinary man and an extraordinary time, The Light Ages conjures up a vivid picture of the medieval world as we have never seen it before.
