    It's rare that I read non-fiction. It's just not my bag. That said, this is one of the most fascinating books I've ever read. I'm guessing I've brought it up hundreds of times in conversation. It's written by a neurologist who works with people who have stranger-than-usual brain ...

    I picked up this book because I am a fan of Oliver Sacks and his various speaking engagements (lectures, public radio interviews, etc)...but I have to say I was fairly nonplussed with it. While the case studies in and of themselves make for interesting reading, the tone of the writi...

    It's rare that I read non-fiction. It's just not my bag. That said, this is one of the most fascinating books I've ever read. I'm guessing I've brought it up hundreds of times in conversation. It's written by a neurologist who works with people who have stranger-than-usual brain ...

    Dear Dr. Sacks, On page 112 of the paperback edition of your book, the second paragraph begins with the following sentence: "And with this, no feeling that he has lost feeling (for the feeling he has lost), no feeling that he has lost the depth, that unfathomable, mysterious, myriad...
