The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat: Oliver Sacks

Brand: Picador   |   Status: Hết hàng

"Incredible man, incredible book. It was recommended to me to read during my Psychology degree. Did I bother reading it then? Nope. But I have finally got around to it. Much of it is already known from my studies but still a very interesting read. A very sad state of affairs for some patients mentioned in the book but very interesting to see just what the brain will put up with, how it translates after a trauma and how people adapt. Worth a read, each chapter is a short story about a new person." - Amazon Reviewer

If a man has lost a leg or an eye, he knows he has lost a leg or an eye; but if he has lost a self – himself – he cannot know it, because he is no longer there to know it.

In this extraordinary book, Dr. Oliver Sacks recounts the stories of patients struggling to adapt to often bizarre worlds of neurological disorder. Here are people who can no longer recognize everyday objects or those they love; who are stricken with violent tics or shout involuntary obscenities, and yet are gifted with unusually acute artistic or mathematical talents. If sometimes beyond our surface comprehension, these brilliant tales illuminate what it means to be human.

A provocative exploration of the mysteries of the human mind, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat is a million-copy bestseller by the twentieth century's greatest neurologist.
