Praise

This slim volume provides a good introduction to the fascinating phenomenon of synesthesia in art and science…. A welcome addition to the growing literature on the subject.—Simon Shaw-Miller, The Art Book

Strongly relying on the latest scientific experiments (brains scans) as well as on a lifelong personal research on and with synesthetes (persons being able of synesthetic perception), the author manages to offer a discussion of synesthesia that is of interest for the specialists as well as for the broader public…. The author’s way of arguing finds always a good balance between direct experience (the testimonies of the many synesthetes with whom he has been working for many years now) and the scientific results of cognitive and neuroscientific research (of which he is able of giving very clear and readable reports and syntheses).

Jan Baetens, Professor of Literary Studies at the Leuven University, Belgium, Leonardo Reviews
