Anthropologist On Mars: Seven Paradoxical Tales, An

Oliver Sacks
To these seven narratives of neurological disorder Dr. Sacks brings the same humanity, poetic observation, and infectious sense of wonder that are apparent in his bestsellers Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. These men, women, and one extraordinary child emerge as brilliantly adaptive personalities, whose conditions have not so much debilitated them as ushered them into another reality.

An interesting look at persons afflicted with disabilities and how it influences their lives. The stories were enjoyable but the writing was a bit text-bookish (dry). That aside, I did like the book and would recommend it for the insight contained within.
