fascinating, profound

by tsunami on Aug 26, 2010

My physical therapist recommended this book while I was recovering from foot surgery. While not as well written as other Sacks' work, some of the anecdotes and observations are fascinating and I found myself thinking about this book long after it was back on the shelf. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in medicine, or who has had a leg or foot injury.
