‘To Sacks a headache is a mine of treasures, a source of visions, a microcosm of human experience and suffering, the philosopher’s stone . . . A remarkable achievement’ Iain Gilchrist, Sunday Telegraph
‘Sacks is certainly telling us something – and we should listen to him . . . This book pushes no panaceas, but its humanity may prove helpful in reconciling us to darker sides of ourselves’ Roy Porter, Sunday Times
‘No migraine sufferer who has read the book will be cured, but at least he or she will know what migraine is and will no longer be afraid’ Anthony Clare, Mail on Sunday
‘When reading his lucid, classic prose even a tyro, even a sufferer, may feel encouraged . . . Both the doctor and patient are in the realm of the marvellous . . . those wondrous insights which have made him the most accessible and at the same time the most magisterial of doctors’ Anita Brookner, SpectatorBiografía del autor:
Oliver Sacks was born in 1933 in London and was educated at Queen's College, Oxford. He completed his medical training at San Francisco's Mount Zion Hospital and at UCLA before moving to New York, where he soon encountered the patients whom he would write about in his book Awakenings.
Dr Sacks spent almost fifty years working as a neurologist and wrote many books, including The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Musicophilia, and Hallucinations, about the strange neurological predicaments and conditions of his patients. The New York Times referred to him as 'the poet laureate of medicine', and over the years he received many awards, including honours from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Royal College of Physicians. In 2008, he was appointed Commander of the British Empire. His memoir, On the Move, was published shortly before his death in August 2015.
