An Anthropologist on Mars: Seven Paradoxical Tales

by Oliver Sacks - £9.99  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780330523608 | ISBN 10: 0330523600

As with his previous bestseller, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks uses case studies to illustrate the myriad ways in which neurological conditions can affect our sense of self, our experience of the world, and how we relate to those around us.
 
Writing with his trademark blend of scientific rigour and human compassion, he describes patients such as the colour-blind painter or the surgeon with compulsive tics that disappear in the operating theatre; patients for whom disorientation and alienation but also adaptation are inescapable facts of life.
