Críticas:

'One can open this book at any chapter - but having done so, one cannot put it down. Disturbances of the Mind, combining deep learning with beguiling narrative, and full of fascinating information and ideas, is one of those rare books that will delight professionals and public alike.' Oliver Sacks

'This book is a treasure for those studying the mind and brain, and is written accessibly to appeal to the general reader interested in the history of medicine and the variety of human behaviour.' Simon Baron-Cohen, Autism Research Centre, Cambridge University

'... [an] intriguing book ...' New Scientist

'... cleverly constructed book ... [Douwe Draaisma] ... has a rare talent for writing informatively and entertainingly without losing depth.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'... full of delights ... Draaisma offers us not just glorious stories, wrapped up in history, to enjoy, but many timeless questions to ponder.' Human Givens Journal

'Draaisma is no straightforward biographer ... his accounts are informed by insights from the burgeoning fields of sociology and philosophy of science. Thus although at one level the book can be read for instruction and entertainment, a theoretical thread about the social institutions within which science and medicine grow runs unobtrusively through the text.' The Lancet

'... a compelling series of stories that offers inspiration; perhaps also, a sense of historical nostalgia ... Disturbances of the Mind is a beguiling, easy-to-read and informative text. Several of the insights, byways and references were new to me. This work should attract the general reader of the history of medicine as well as neurologists, psychiatrists and students of human behaviour disorders. It conforms to W. B. Yeats's caveat: 'think like a wise man but express yourself like the common people.' The excellent accounts he provides allow us a glimpse into the minds of the discoverers and an appreciation of their intelligent perceptions (at least the equal of our own), often struggling for knowledge in the academic darkness of their times.' BRAIN: A Journal of Neurology

Reseña del editor:

Sergei Korsakoff, Alois Alzheimer, James Parkinson, Hans Asperger and other eminent scientists, are all names which have become synonymous with a disease, a syndrome, or an autistic disorder. Although the names of these psychiatrists and neurologists are familiar, we often know little about the individuals themselves and the circumstances surrounding their discoveries. What exactly did they discover, and who were their patients? Douwe Draaisma expertly reconstructs the lives of these and eight other 'names' from the science of mind and brain. Disturbances of the Mind provides a fascinating, illuminating, and at times touching insight into the history of brain research. Thanks to Draaisma's unerring eye and elegant, engaging style, the case histories of Asperger, Bonnet, Capgras, Clérambault, Korsakoff and Gilles de la Tourette syndromes; Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases; the areas of Broca and Brodmann; Jackson's epilepsy; and the Gage matrix are all brought to life and transformed into unforgettable tales.
