Katie Newman, April 21, 2014 (view all comments by Katie Newman)
Sacks has a truly astonishing way of connecting readers to his patients and his cases he's describing. He takes neuroscience to a different level, studying the side of the brain that's so fleeting in research. There aren't any hard facts, just stories he retells. It's a beautiful way to realize how much your brain does, and how you actually relate to world. When you read about people trying to figure out what objects are called, it's simply amazing with what happens when you lose part of your brain. Definitely a book that you can reread over and over again and take more information from.

This book is a collection of twenty-four stories describing various neurological patients. They suffer from a wide variety of maladies involving perception- a woman who cannot tell where parts of her body are located, a man who has entirely lost his sense of balance, various patients with phantom limbs, Tourette's syndrome, strange kinds of memory loss and more. Fascinating account.
