Reviews

Populated by a cast as strange as that of the most fantastic fiction . . . Dr Sacks shows the awesome powers of our mind and just how delicately balanced they have to be. * Sunday Times *
This book is for everybody who has felt from time to time that certain twinge of self-identity and sensed how easily, at any moment, one might lose it. * The Times *
A gripping journey into the recesses of the human mind. * Daily Mail *
