The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales review

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical TalesThe Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales by Oliver Sacks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a collection of interesting neurological cases. Dr. Sacks goes into some detail about the case and what the underlying cause might be. The book can be a bit depressing at times because there often is very little he can do to help the patient, and it can feel a bit disjointed – the cases are roughly grouped together, but there’s not usually much in common between them. But all in all it was a good read.

Paper copy, available for borrowing.
