#1 bestselling author

The bestselling author of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat describes how we experience the visual world.

How does the brain perceive and interpret information from the eye? And what happens when the process is disrupted? In The Mind’s Eye, Oliver Sacks tells the stories of people who are able to navigate the world and communicate with others despite losing what many of us consider indispensable senses and abilities: the capacity to recognise faces, the sense of three-dimensional space, the ability to read, the sense of sight. For all of these people, the challenge is to adapt to a radically new way of being in the world – and The Mind’s Eye is testament to the myriad ways that we, as humans, are capable of rising to this challenge.

'Oliver Sacks is a perfect antidote to the anaesthetic of familiarity. His writing turns brains and minds transparent.'
The Observer

'... Sacks's most powerful book to date.'
The Sunday Telegraph

'Packed with wisdom, humour, extraordinary human stories and reflections on how we all perceive the world ... He ends with a brilliant discussion of blindness and the ways in which blind people develop visual concepts. Heartily recommended.'
Reader's Digest
