To these seven narratives of neurological disorder, Dr. Sacks brings the same humanity, poetic observation, and infectious sense of wonder that are apparent in his best sellers Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. These men, women, and one extraordinary child emerge as brilliantly adaptive personalities, whose conditions have not so much debilitated them as ushered them into another reality.
PLEASE NOTE: Some changes have been made to the original manuscript with the permission of Oliver Sacks.
"True to his past work, he offers compelling stories told with the cognizance of a clinician and the heart and compassion of a poet." (Library Journal)
