    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 bestsellers 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.

An Anthropologist on Mars - worthwhile read

by Lydiaca on Mar 11, 2010

Oliver Sacks with his warm, down to earth story telling informs us of the strengths of several neurological disorders. He leads us through an intimate, day to day journey with seven of these very special people. His telling widens our own understanding of what it means to be human. We become humbled and enriched by this book. It is easy to read, hard to put down, soothing to the soul. Thanks, Oliver, for your open, curious mind and big heart.
