Recommended for: Oliver Sacks fans, anyone who enjoys a good memoir and/or science
Read in January, 2002

I love Oliver Sacks, memoirs, and science. This was a wonderful book: a great memoir, and I learned a lot about chemistry, a field/branch of science where I am almost 100% ignorant. Who knew chemistry could be so entertaining! And because I’ve enjoyed Oliver Sacks books, I especially enjoyed reading about his childhood.
