In his most extraordinary book, "one of the great clinical writers of the 20th century" (New York Times) recounts the case histories of patients lost in the bizarre, apparently inescapable world of neurological disorders. Oliver Sacks's the Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat is the story of individuals afflicted with fantastic perceptual and intellectual aberrations: patients who have lost their memory and with it the greater part of their past; who are no longer able to recognize people and common objects; who are stricken with violent tics and grimaces or who shout involuntary obscenities; whose limbs have become alien; who have been dismissed as retarded yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents.
