I almost gave up on this book, but in the end, I was glad to have finished it. Tammet is a high functioning autistic writer, essayist and translator and in Every Word he tells his story of autism and his fascination with language. In particular, his chapters on "Icelandic Names" and "Dead Man Talking" were insightful and worth his sometimes lengthy digressions.
