Writing simply and beautifully, Sacks uses individual case histories to reveal the infinite complexities of the human mind.
Sacks' great gift is his capacity to place himself in the position of his subjects, to see the world the way they see it and to empathize with their condition with great compassion but without patronage or pity.
