Publishers Description: "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat" is populated by a cast as strange as that of the most fantastic fiction. The subject of this strange and wonderful book is what happens when things go wrong with parts of the brain most of us dont know exist ...Dr Sacks shows the awesome powers of our mind and just how delicately balanced they have to be - "Sunday Times". Who is this book for Who is it not for It is for everybody who has felt from time to time that certain twinge of self-identity and sensed how easily, at any moment, one might lose it - "The Times". This is, in the best sense, a serious book. It is, indeed, a wonderful book, by which I mean not only that it is excellent (which it is) but also that it is full of wonder, wonders and wondering. He brings to these often unhappy people understanding, sympathy and respect. Sacks is always learning from his patients, marvelling at them, widening his own understanding and ours - "Punch".
