Some brief overview of this book

In his most extraordinary book, one of the great clinical writers of the 20th century The New York Times recounts the case histories of patients lost in the bizarre, apparently inescapable world of neurological disorders. Oliver Sackss The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat tells the stories of individuals afflicted with fantastic perceptual and intellectual aberrations: patients who have lost their memories and with them the greater part of their pasts; who are no longer able to recognize people and common objects; who are stricken with violent tics and grimaces or who shout involuntary obscenities; whose limbs have become alien; who have been dismissed as retarded yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents.

If inconceivably strange, these brilliant tales remain, in Dr. Sacks splendid and sympathetic telling, deeply human. They are studies of life struggling against incredible adversity, and they enable us to enter the world of the neurologically impaired, to imagine with our hearts what it must be to live and feel as they do. A great healer, Sacks never loses sight of medicines ultimate responsibility: the suffering, afflicted, fighting human subject.

Biography

I think writing and language are not just to articulate or communicate, but they are also to investigate, the writer and neurologist Oliver Sacks once said. For me, writing and medicine, writing and science, are not separate: they ople and common objects; who are stricken with violent tics and grimaces or who shout involuntary obscenities; whose limbs have become alien; who have been dismissed as retarded yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents.

If inconceivably strange, these brilliant tales remain, in Dr. Sacks splendid and sympathetic telling, deeply human. They are studies of life struggling against incredible adversity, and they enable us to enter the world of the neurologically impaired, to imagine with our hearts what it must be to live and feel as they do. A great healer, Sacks never loses sight of medicines ultimate responsibility: the suffering, afflicted, fighting human subject.
