When Oliver Sacks was twelve years old a perceptive schoolmaster wrote in his report Sacks will go far if he does not go too far It is now abundantly clear that Sacks has never stopped going From its opening pages on his youthful obsession with motorcycles and speed i On the Move i is infused with his restless energy As he recounts his experiences as a young neurologist in the early s first in California where he struggled with drug addiction and then in New York where he discovered a long forgotten illness in the back wards of a chronic hospital we see how his engagement with patients comes to define his life br br With unbridled honesty and humor Sacks shows us that the same energy that drives his physical passions weight lifting and swimming also drives his cerebral passions He writes about his love affairs both romantic and intellectual his guilt over leaving his family to come to America his bond with his schizophrenic brother and the writers and scientists Thom Gunn A R Luria W H Auden Gerald M Edelman Francis Crick who influenced him br br i On the Move i is the story of a brilliantly unconventional physician and writer and of the man who has illuminated the many ways that the brain makes us human, A deeply moving testimony and celebration of how to embrace life br br In January Oliver Sacks was diagnosed with a recurrence of cancer and he shared this news in a i New York Times i essay that inspired readers all over the world I cannot pretend I am without fear But my predominant feeling is one of gratitude Above all I have been a sentient being a thinking animal on this beautiful planet and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and adventure br i Gratitude i consists of four essays that originally appeared in i The New York Times i accompanied by a foreword that describes the occasion of each chapter The foreword is written by Billy Hayes Oliver Sacks s partner and Kate Edgar his long time collaborator, Paradoxical portraits of seven neurological patients including a surgeon consumed by the compulsive tics of Tourette s syndrome unless he is operating an artist who loses all sense of color in a car accident but finds new creative power in black amp white amp others, With the same trademark compassion and erudition he brought to The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat Oliver Sacks explores the place music occupies in the brain and how it affects the human condition In Musicophilia he shows us a variety of what he calls musical misalignments Among them a man struck by lightning who suddenly desires to become a pianist at the age of forty two an entire group of children with Williams syndrome who are hypermusical from birth people with amusia to whom a symphony sounds like the clattering of pots and pans and a man whose memory spans only seven seconds for everything but music Illuminating inspiring and utterly unforgettable Musicophilia is Oliver Sacks latest masterpiece
