Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain, Revised and Expanded Edition
Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain - Oliver Sacks This will certainly be of interest to anyone who loves music, the mysteries of the mind and the human condition in general. Inside the book one will find topics ranging from synesthesia to musical hallucinations, and beyond. It is a wonderful manifestation of Oliver Sacks' love for science and also for music. Apart from that, it is also an excellent page-turner, which means it is a must for someone who feels music an important role in their lives.

An Anthropologist on Mars
An Anthropologist on Mars - Oliver Sacks Believe it or not but these tales were first written down in a clinical neurologist's notebook, which means they are all real cases of human disorders. Of course there are many neurologists in the world, but there is only one of them who can TELL US there stories in an extraordinary and yet simple manner. Putting a human face on neurological traumas, he helps a lay audience understand how hard it gets for people with brain and neurological problems. An astonishing piece of writing which deserves much more attention, especially today when any kind of irregularity in human behaviour is mistaken for a serious disorder.

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat: And Other Clinical Tales
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales - Oliver Sacks The first thought that crossed my mind after having read this book was to go to the nearest bookshop and buy "An Anthropologist on Mars". These two particular works written by the same author, namely Oliver Sacks were recommended to me by my friend, who at the time had bought the whole collection of works by Sacks. It took me over a year to pick it up and the only thing I regret is that I hadn't read it earlier. I was, and still am, amazed what a complex machinery the human brain is. The disorders described by Sacks are unique and unusual, which makes the reading ever more fascinating. The only shortcoming seems to be the length of the book, because, I mean, this is one of the most really interesting and fascinating pieces of writing I have ever come across. I very highly recommend it and I am not joking when I tell you - this book can really change your attitude and way of thinking.
