Review

Noel Perrin

"Chicago Sun-Times"

Dr. Sacks's best book.... One sees a wise, compassionate and very literate mind

at work in these 20 stories, nearly all remarkable, and many the kind that restore one's faith in humanity.



Clarence E. Olsen

"St. Louis Post-Dispatch"

A provocative introduction to the marvels of the human mind...



"New York Magazine"

Dr. Sacks's most absorbing book.... His tales are so compelling that many of

them serve as eerie metaphors not only for the condition of modern medicine

but of modern man.

Review

‘This book is for everybody who has felt from time to time that certain twinge of self-identity and sensed how easily, at any moment, one might lose it.’ (The Times)

‘Oliver Sacks has become the world’s best-known neurologist. His case studies of broken minds offer brilliant insight into the mysteries of consciousness.’ (The Guardian)

‘Populated by a cast as strange as that of the most fantastic fiction ... Dr Sacks shows the awesome powers of our mind and just how delicately balanced they have to be.' (The Sunday Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
