really liked it

Oh Oliver thank you for your work helping understand what music does to our brain. So much great stuff contained within on how our brain works and how musical is a critical piece of it. Sacks tells stories of his patients and how their various brain maladies are affected by music. We still know so little about this subject. There is something native in music that we overlook. I was sad to see the report of Oliver Sacks passing while in the middle of this book. I am looking forward to reading more of his works.
