TED Talk: Oliver Sacks

If you are not a convert already can I suggest watching TED talks; I am an addict! 


Oliver Sacks is a British trained neurologist and a gifted writer and storyteller. He is well known as a writer and you will a learn a lot of neurology from reading his books:
  1. Migraine (1970) London: Faber and Faber; Berkeley: University of California Press
  2. Awakenings (1973) London: Duckworth; New York: Doubleday
  3. A Leg to Stand On (1984) London: Duckworth; New York: Summit Books
  4. The Man who Mistook his Wife for A Hat (1985) London: Duckworth; New York: Summit Books
  5. Seeing Voices: A Journey into the World of the Deaf (1990) Berkeley: University of California Press; London: Picador
  6. An Anthropologist on Mars (1995) New York: Alfred A. Knopf; London: Picador
  7. The Island of the Colorblind (1996) New York: Alfred A. Knopf; London: Picador
  8. Uncle Tungsten: Memories of a Chemical Boyhood (2001) New York: Alfred A. Knopf; London: Picador
  9. Oaxaca Journal (2002) Washington DC: National Geographic Directions
  10. Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain (2007) New York: Alfred A. Knopf; London: Picador
  11. The Mind’s Eye (2010) New York: Alfred A. Knopf; London: Picador
I would recommend starting with "The man who mistook his Wife for a Hat"
