The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Paperback / softback Book

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat Paperback / softback

Part of the Picador Classic series

Paperback / softback

Description

In his most extraordinary book, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks recounts the stories of patients lost in the bizarre, apparently inescapable world of neurological disorders.

These are case studies of people who have lost their memories and with them the greater part of their pasts; who are no longer able to recognize people or common objects; whose limbs have become alien; who are afflicted and yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents.

In Dr Sacks's splendid and sympathetic telling, each tale is a unique and deeply human study of life struggling against incredible adversity. 'Oliver Sacks has become the world's best-known neurologist.

His case studies of broken minds offer brilliant insight into the mysteries of consciousness' - Guardian
