Clarence E. Olsen
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
A provocative introduction to the marvels of the human mind...
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.
New York Magazine
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.
