Review

'Alongside a selection of neurological cases, Sacks turns the light on himself to reveal the complex interplay between seeing and thinking'
--Daily Telegraph Review magazine

'Alongside a selection of neurological cases, Sacks turns the light on himself to reveal the complex interplay between seeing and thinking' --Daily Telegraph Review

'Sacks is commendably accessible as always, no matter how tricky the science, and as ever he looks for the hope in neurological situations, for the signs that might mean recovery. His fascination with the brain and what it does is truly infectious' --The Glasgow Herald

'Offering hope and wisdom it illustrates how vital sight is to our perception of the world' --Daily Express

'All these essays highlight the fragility of the fine neurological threads that tether people to their sense of self: the sudden collapse of esteemed physician into terrified patient brings home the point with precision'
--Guardian Saturday Review

`In measured prose with a blessed lack of jargon, Sacks explores the ingenuity with which individuals cope with bizarre neurological conditions...humane, empathic, he is the doctor you would want.' --The Independent --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
