    A physician, professor of neurology and author, Oliver Sacks 1933-2015) has been described by the New York Times as 'a kind of poet laureate of contemporary medicine'. His books are made up of case histories of his patients, and explore both their neurological disorders and the strategies they adopted to cope with them.

    A bestseller when it was first published in 1985, this collection of 24 case histories includes a man with a special form of visual agnosia, people whose limbs have become alien and the 'lost mariner' with no memory of recent events.
