This book was assigned to a philosophy class I dropped, which means I read it for pleasure and no other reason. It's not a life-changer, but for a medical book, it's very human. I read it over ten years ago, and I can still distinctly remember some of the people, their conditions, and the ways they described them. That really says something about Dr. Sacks both as a doctor and a writer. He sees his patients as individual people and he is able to capture each one in his or her unique voice.
