For most of us, seeing is so intrinsic that it seems closer than our fingertips. When we lose our sight or it is altered in some unexpected way, our perceptions are often reconstructed in radical ways. Oliver Sack's The Mind's Eye ventures into this dark terrain through the case histories of six individuals whose lives have been affected by changes in their vision. The neurologist/ psychiatrist includes himself among the subjects, discussing his experiences after a tumor appeared in one of his eyes. As always, the author who approaches subjects with freshness of an anthropologist on Mars (a title of one of his books) illuminates a topic close at hand. A bestseller in a new paperback and NOOK Book.
