4.0 out of 5 stars For those who wish to understand about brain malfunction., 7 Feb. 2001
Sacks delivers a powerful portrayal of what can happen in the case of brain malfunction. Where most books dealing with this subject area concentrate on the nuts and bolts of brain function Sack's text brings it to life by focusing on the real experiances of patients known to him. By doing this Sack's creates real understanding of how brain malfunction can impact on ordinary lives. The reading of the book itself is an experience. The cases themselves are both terrifying and intriguing and at the same time inspiring. This book is recommended to anyone as an experience alone and will be of particular use and importance to anyone interested in the fragility of the human mind/brain. Highly recommended to students of psychology and psychiatry.
