SummaryAdd a Summary
Dr. Sacks led an active, fascinating life. He was especially curious about people with weird mental conditions, and studied them, and got to know them, as whole human beings. He himself had a no-holds-barred side, including 1) his passion for motorcycling at 100 mph for 5 hours on Route 66, after having put in a full week as neurologist at the hospital, 2) mind-altering drug experiences, and 3) writing virtually non-stop about his all-out investigation into his patients' lives and conditions. The last couple of chapters seemed just science, rather than Sacks's life, and wasn't as interesting. Overall, though, a worthwhile book.
