Hallucinations by Oliver Sacks

Oliver Sacks could write about something as banal as binder paper and make it compelling, but he doesn’t; he takes on the subjects that already intrigue us and then offers his physician’s insight—a mix of curiosity, keen observation, and empathy. His latest is about hallucinations. Sacks weaves together stories of his patients with stories of his own experience, and with elegance and detail, he describes what hallucinations tell us about the structure and composition of our brains. And more thought provokingly, he suggests how the hallucinated experience is essential to the human experience, how it is built into our myths, our folklore, and our faith.
