Born OTD in 1933, British neurologist, naturalist, historian of science, and author, Oliver Sacks. In his most extraordinary book, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, 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 & 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 & yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents.

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat

In Dr Sacks’s splendid and sympathetic telling, each tale is a unique and deeply human study of life struggling against incredible adversity. Available in store and online.
