#1 New York Times bestseller

A classic work of psychology, this international bestseller provides a groundbreaking insight into the human mind.

If a man has lost a leg or an eye, he knows he has lost a leg or an eye; but if he has lost a self – himself – he cannot know it, because he is no longer there to know it. In this extraordinary book, Dr Oliver Sacks recounts the stories of patients struggling to adapt to often bizarre worlds of neurological disorder. Here are people who can no longer recognise everyday objects or those they love; who are stricken with violent tics or shout involuntary obscenities; who have been dismissed as autistic or retarded, yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents. If inconceivably strange, these brilliant tales illuminate what it means to be human. A provocative exploration of the mysteries of the human mind, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat is a million-copy bestseller by the 20th century’s greatest neurologist.

'Populated by a cast as strange as that of the most fantastic fiction ... Dr Sacks shows the awesome powers of our mind and just how delicately balanced they have to be.'
The Sunday Times

'This book is for everybody who has felt from time to time that certain twinge of self-identity and sensed how easily, at any moment, one might lose it.'
The Times

'... insightful, compassionate and moving ... a masterpiece of clinical writing.'
The New York Times
