  • Description
    With an introduction by Will Self. A classic work of psychology, this international bestseller provides a groundbreaking insight into the human mind. If a man has lost a leg or an eye, he knows he has lost a leg or an eye; but if he has lost a self - himself - he cannot know it, because he is no longer there to know it. In this extraordinary book, Dr. Oliver Sacks recounts the stories of patients struggling to adapt to often bizarre worlds of neurological disorder. Here are people who can no longer recognize everyday objects or those they love; who are stricken with violent tics or shout involuntary obscenities; who have been dismissed as autistic or retarded, yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents. If inconceivably strange, these brilliant tales illuminate what it means to be human. A provocative exploration of the mysteries of the human mind, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat is a million-copy bestseller by the twentieth century's greatest neurologist.

    Excellent Book

    Haven't bought it from flipkart, but read it in library. Totally engrossing and given that I don't particularly like medical science, this book is simply awesome. To make a insight into a normal person is hard enough, but Oliver Sacks gives a pretty insightful view into what world must look like for people with extremely rare mental complications, some of them very bizarre looking.

    Classic--defines the genre

    Oliver Sacks has single-handedly defined the literary genre of which this book is a classic example. A. R. Luria, whom Sacks acknowledges as an inspiration, may have been one of the first to write about medical conditions of his patients with intelligence and compassion, but Sacks has taken it to another level with his breadth and depth of knowledge.

    The case histories which form this book prove, to paraphrase Sir Arthur C. Clarke, that truth is always far stranger than fiction. No better bo...
