About This Book
In his most extraordinary book, "one of the great clinical writers of the 20th
century" (The New York Times) recounts the case histories of patients lost in
the bizarre, apparently inescapable world of neurological disorders. Oliver
Sacks's The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat tells the stories of individuals
afflicted with fantastic perceptual and intellectual aberrations: patients who
have lost their memories and with them the greater part of their pasts; who are
no longer able to recognize people and common objects; who are stricken with
violent tics and grimaces or who shout involuntary obscenities; whose limbs have
become alien; who have been dismissed as retarded yet are gifted with uncanny
artistic or mathematical talents.
If inconceivably strange, these brilliant tales remain, in Dr. Sacks's splendid and sympathetic telling, deeply human. They are studies of life struggling against incredible adversity, and they enable us to enter the world of the neurologically impaired, to imagine with our hearts what it must be to live and feel as they do. A great healer, Sacks never loses sight of medicine's ultimate responsibility: "the suffering, afflicted, fighting human subject."
