In his most extraordinary book, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks recounts the stories of patients lost in the bizarre, apparently inescapable world of neurological disorders.

In Dr Sacks's splendid and sympathetic telling, each tale is a unique and deeply human study of life struggling against... View more info
