No writer has succeeded in capturing the medical and human drama of illness as honestly and as eloquently as Oliver Sacks.
During the last few months of his life, he wrote a set of essays in which he movingly explored his feelings about completing a life and coming to terms with his own death.
"It is the fate of every human being," Sacks wrote, "to be a unique individual, to find his own path, to live his own life, to die his own death."
Together, these four essays form an ode to the uniqueness of each human being and to gratitude for the gift of life.

To the Point, Yet Told From the Heart
Mr. Dan Woren, as narrator, wonderfully captured the feeling behind Oliver Sacks' words. I very rarely read nonfiction, yet I was drawn to Mr. Sacks and things I had heard about him over the years. This narrative did not ramble on...it very succinctly put into sharp focus the ending chapter of Mr. Sacks' life...as I hope to understand my own last chapter...and to convey it to those I know and love, as simply and heartfelt, as he did. I enjoyed this and can see myself coming back to re-listen, just for the pure pleasure of doing so and further thought.
