              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.

              Why can humans alone invent? In this book, psychologist and world renowned autism expert Simon Baron-Cohen puts forward a bold new theory: because we can identify patterns, specifically if-and-then patterns. And he argues that the genes for this unique ability overlap with the ge...nes for autism. From the first musical instrument to the agricultural, industrial and digital revolutions, Baron-Cohen shows how this unique ability has driven human progress for 70,000 years. By linking one of our greatest human strengths with a condition that is so often misunderstood, The Pattern Seekers challenges us to think differently about those who think differently.
