Alfred A. Knopf
A Book Review by Paul Harris
Most of you know my love of just about anything written by Oliver Sacks. He writes with such clarity and evokes such imagery. I find I can almost always empathize with him and his patients fully as a result of his excellent writing. With the title of this one clueing me into thinking that of course this was going to be all about vision, I was very excited to get this right on release in its hard bound edition. Well, I’m sorry to say that I was a bit disappointed by this book. I had become so used to Dr. Sacks making me think and helping me see things in new ways that I maybe took it for granted that this book would once again set the stage for new thinking. I found it full of new information but it didn’t act as a trigger for any significant “Ah-ha’s”.
