Summary
From its opening pages on Oliver Sacks' youthful obsession with motorcycles and speed, this memoir is infused with his restless energy. As he recounts his experiences as a young neurologist in the early 1960s, first in California and then in New York, it becomes clear that his earnest desire for engagement has occasioned unexpected encounters and travels. This is the story of a brilliantly unconventional physician and writer - and a man who has illuminated the many ways that the brain makes us human
