Summary
The author of Awakenings profiles seven neurologically impaired patients, including a surgeon with Tourette's syndrome and an artist whose color sense has been destroyed in an accident but who finds new creative power in black and white. Reprint. NYT. 125,000 ad/promo. (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description: 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.
