Since I gave my book to Nymeth (cuz she’s just wonderful and I owe her more than a book), I don’t have it to refer to. OOPS! I was so excited about shipping it off that I forgot I hadn’t done a review. Silly me; I wanted to include this in my Science Challenge but I’ll just have to read MORE (ie, something else by Sacks – so many great options! perhaps The Island of the Colorblind, which is in-house.)
Short Thoughts The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks, first published 1990, 256 pages
So many terms unknown to me.
Did not know a phantom limb is needed for prosthesis to work!
I now want to read/see Awakenings.
To read one of Nymeth’s reviews of another Sacks’ book, please click on her review of An Anthropologist on Mars. Be watching for her review of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. Soon; let’s let the postal services deliver it and give her time to read it.
