Reviews

Oliver Sacks is a neurologist, a man of humane eloquence, and a genuine communicator. The value of this book lies in its willingness to combine the technical and the demonic, to admit poetry and philosophy and the religious impulse. It is also intensely personal, and affirms the community of human experience. * Observer *
In every way a marvellously rich and thoughtful tale. * Sunday Telegraph *
A remarkable, generous, vivid and thoroughly intelligent piece of writing. * Sunday Times *
