Reviewer: Peter D. Kramer, (Washington Post)

"Curious, cultured, caring, in his person Sacks justifies the medical profession and, one is tempted to say, the human race."

Reviewer: Bryan Appleyard, (Times (London))

"[Sacks] writes, basically, adventure stories, accounts of voyages into the unexplored territory of the brain. In doing so, he reveals a landscape far more complex and strange than anything we could infer from our daily interactions. After finishing a Sacks book, every face in the street inspires agonies of wild surmise."

Reviewer: Colin McGinn, (New York Review of Books)

"Ultimately...Sacks clinical case studies are exercises in love and respect."
