it was ok
Recommended for: people interested in neuropsychology
Read in September, 2007

I must agree with another reviewer that this book is richly written and complex and laborious to read. I like the subject of the book but not Dr. Webber's personality or the underlying critism of those who write books about neurological patients like Oliver Sacks. I didn't think Dr. Webber 'lossing himself' had anythnig to do with Mike's syndrome, but with his failed book. I wish the book had focused less on the doc and more on Mike. And I think by the end of the book, I *GOT* the fact the doc doesn't like cellular phones. Not like it has to be repeated 1000 times to make that point.
