Críticas:

"Absorbing...Dr. Sacks provides what he calls a kind of 'natural history or anthology of hallucinations' drawn from his patients' experiences, his own observations and from literature on the subject...Sacks conjures these apparitions in language that has an easy, tactile magic. As he's done in so many of his earlier books, like "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat" and" An Anthropologist on Mars," he uses his medical knowledge to illuminate the complexities of the human brain and the mysteries of the human mind. At the same time, his compassion for his patients and his own philosophical outlook turn what might have been clinical case studies into humanely written short stories, animated as much by an intuitive appreciation of the human condition as by scientific understanding." -Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times "
"Effective--largely because Sacks never turns exploitative, instead sketching out each illness with compassion and thoughtful prose. A riveting look inside the human brain and its quirks." -Kirkus
"Fascinating...Writing with his trademark mix of evocative description, probing curiosity, and warm empathy, Sacks once again draws back the curtain on the mind's improbable workings." -"Publishers Weekly"
"Sacks' best-selling nonfiction stories based on his practice of clinical neurology constitute one shining reason for thinking that we're living in a golden age of medical writing...Sacks defines the best of medical writing." -"Booklist"
"Another gem of a book...With a fine sense of narrative, Sacks deftly integrates literature, art, and medical history around his very human, often riveting, case histories. This book is recommended for all readers, not just those with symptoms! This is a model of humane science made compellingly readable." -"Library Journal," starred review

"Dr. Sacks conjures apparitions in language that has an easy, tactile magic. . . . He illuminate[s] the complexities of the human brain and the mysteries of the human mind." --Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"

"Elegant. . . . An absorbing plunge into a mystery of the mind." --"Entertainment Weekly"
"Humane, compassionate. . . . These tales are at turns delightful, entertaining, bizarre and sometimes downright terrifying." --"Minneapolis Star Tribune"
"This doctor cares deeply about his patients' experiences--about their lives, not just about their diseases. Through his accounts we can imagine what it is like to find that our perceptions don't hook on to reality--that our brains are constructing a world that nobody else can see, hear or touch. . . . Sacks has turned hallucinations from something bizarre and frightening into something that seems part of what it means to be a person. His book, too, is a medical and human triumph." --"The Washington Post
"
"[Sacks] covers a broad range of sensory disturbances. . . . One of the pleasures of reading "Hallucinations" is understanding how complex human reality often trumps attempts to categorize it." --"The New York Times Book Review
"
"Sacks' science writing is always revelatory, and there are moments in "Hallucinations" when seeing things can feel downright life-affirming." --"Time"

"
"Fascinating. . . . With his special mix of patient case studies, historical accounts, reader correspondence and personal experience, Oliver Sacks has again found a way to unlock one of the mysteries of our brains." --"The Miami Herald
"
"Escorts the reader through case studies and literary excursions into the fantastical land of our perceptions. . . . His vignettes are short, pungent and self-contained. They join his earlier books, starting with "Awakenings" in 1973--all building blocks that snap our increasing knowledge of the brain into focus." --"The Plain Dealer
"
"A brisk but characteristically absorbing survey of the many ways human beings perceive things that are not there. . . . [Sacks] gives us the exceptional and the idiosyncratic." --"Salon"
"Should be required reading for anyone in a caregiver position. . . . Blends centuries-old medical wisdom, current research, and observation of his own patients into an engaging summary of every way our brains seek to depart from reality." --"St. Louis Post-Dispatch"
"A thoughtful and compassionate look at the phantoms our brains can produce." --NPR
"Wondrous." --"Elle"
"A super-fascinating and accessible-to-lay-people adventure in neuroscience. . . . Sacks is crazy-smart, and it shows. But he's also just flat-out amazed by the brain, and it's an enthusiasm you can't help but catch." --Book Riot
"Amazing. . . . Sacks's temperament . . . facilitates that extraordinary humanity, that loving curiosity about the experiences of other people, that near-magical ability to see how even the most seemingly devastating losses may be remedied by the mind's remarkable powers of compensation." --"Bookforum"

Reseña del editor:

To many people, hallucinations imply madness, but in fact they are a common part of the human experience. These sensory distortions range from the shimmering zigzags of a visual migraine to powerful visions brought on by fever, injuries, drugs, sensory deprivation, exhaustion, or even grief. Hallucinations doubtless lie behind many mythological traditions, literary inventions, and religious epiphanies. Drawing on his own experiences, a wealth of clinical cases from among his patients, and famous historical examples ranging from Dostoevsky to Lewis Carroll, the legendary neurologist Oliver Sacks investigates the mystery of these sensory deceptions: what they say about the working of our brains, how they have influenced our folklore and culture, and why the potential for hallucination is present in us all.
