Synesthesia (The MIT Press Essential Knowledge series) with Richard Cytowic
One in twenty-three people carry the genes for the synesthesia. Not a disorder but a neurological trait — like perfect pitch — synesthesia creates vividly felt cross-sensory couplings.

In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Richard Cytowic, the expert who returned synesthesia to mainstream science after decades of oblivion, offers a concise, accessible primer on this fascinating human experience.
