Love reading his case studies

I did not enjoy this book as well as some of Oliver Sacks' other books. I did learn a lot about the author and his visual problems. He certainly has accomplished a great deal with limited vision. I learned a lot about the ability of the human brain to compensate for visual loss.

I have read almost all of Oliver Sacks' books and loved them.

Dr. Sacks explains fascinating ways our brains behave, or should I say, misbehave, and how some  individuals have learned to cope and make the best of a situation. He includes his own "malfunctions", but the problem here  is he goes way overboard about his own  case history of developing  melanoma of the eye. I could have done without his daily  "dear diary" entries and settled with a  summary of his visual changes. And I never did understand the fuss about his stereoscopic vision.   Unfortunately I recently heard his melanoma has returned and is inoperable.  He has done a fine job of making some peculiar  medical conditions  interesting and understandable to many lay persons.  His writings will be missed.

This is an interesting book and I learned quite a bit about how the brain works. But it was little hard to stay interrested for the whole book; a little too detailed in some areas. I would have liked more human interest, less medical and science detail.
