Recommended for: Anyone who loved chemistry in high school, but has never gone back since
Read in March, 2007

This book is a great, unique memoir of Sacks' love of chemistry and science in general, with really accessible explanations of the chemistry that so fascinated him. If I could, I'd give this book a 3.5 - because just when I wanted more information about Sacks, his life, and his chemical inspirations, I would get more technical chemistry or chemistry history.
