In The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks, a neurologist who claims to be equally interested in disease and people, explores neurological disorders with a novelist’s skill and an appreciation of his patients as human beings.

He introduces the reader to real people who suffer from a variety of neurological syndromes which include symptoms such as amnesia, uncontrolled movements, and musical hallucinations. Their stories are recounted in a riveting, compassionate, and thoughtful manner. (from Publisher’s Weekly and the Book Description.)

Evening Book Discussion choices are available at the Circulation Desk.
