An Anthropologist On Mars: Seven Paradoxical Tales

An Anthropologist On Mars: Seven Paradoxical Tales by Oliver Sacks

Synopsis: Detailed and fascinating 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 a new sensibility and creative power in black and white; and an autistic professor who cannot decipher the simplest social exchange between humans, but has built a career out of her intuitive understanding of animal behavior.
