Kindle Oliver Sacks ☆ Kindle The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical ☆ 3q1.co

If a man has lost a leg or an eye he knows he has lost a leg or an eye but if he has lost a self—himself—he cannot know it because he is no longer there to know it Dr Oliver Sacks recounts the stories of patients struggling to adapt to often bizarre worlds of neurological disorder Here are people who can no longer recognize everyday objects or those they love who are stricken with violent tics or shout involuntary obscenities who have been dismissed as autistic or retarded yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents If inconceivably strange these brilliant tales illuminate what it means to be human

    It's rare that I read non fiction It's just not my bagThat said this is one of the most fascinating books I've ever read I'm guessing I've brought it up hundreds of times in conversationIt's written by a neurologist who works with people who have stranger than usual brain issues And not only are the cases interesting but the way he writes about the people invovled is really lovely It's not clinical at all Not judgemental It's very loving I would say It's interesting to see someone who obviously knows a lot of hard line science write about these cases in terms that seem to me suited to someone who would be a philosopher or a spiritualistAmazing book Can't recommend it highly enough
