Praise

“Insightful, compassionate, moving . . . the lucidity and power of a gifted writer.”
The New York Times Book Review

“A provocative introduction to the human mind.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“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.”
Chicago Sun-Times

“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”
New York Magazine

“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.”
Sunday Times
 
“Sacks explores neurological disorders with a novelist’s skill and an appreciation of his patients as human beings.”
Publishers Weekly
 
“Sensitive yet lively. . . . This book ranks with the very best of its genre. It will inform and entertain anyone, especially those who find medicine an intriguing and mysterious art.”
Kirkus Reviews
