Hello Daniel,
My name is Paula and I live in Brazil. I bought your book some days ago by recommendation of a dear friend and because I was so interested in autism. I’m a psychology student and this is one of the subjects that I felt more fascinated about so far.
It turns out your book was brilliant! It made me look at things in a different way and realize that we have lots of things in common. I felt a huge empathy for you. So I watched your documentary the next day and your interview in David Letterman’s show also. I have to say I think you must be an amazing person to talk to and be friends with. I admire you very much!
I too love to learn new languages and now I’m studying French (which I love) and I loved the tongue twisters I found in your site!
Thank you for your book and for showing the world the incredible person you are.
I wish you the best!

Heill og sæll Daníel. Ég held að ég hafi nú einhvern tímann sagt þér, að 3 og 9 eru einmitt tvær uppáhaldstölurnar mínar, enda er ég fæddur 3. september.

Þannig að 39 hefur klárlega vinninginn umfram 51.

Bestu kveðjur,
Gísli Hvanndal

Happy Pi Day!
I must admit that I'm still trying to imagine what it's like to take a stroll through Pi.
