The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat

I thought about this book during the last Craft Night but the opening passed to mention it. This is a nonfiction book by neurologist Oliver Sacks. In it, he details the bizarre conditions that he encountered during his career. A lot of it really shows you how the brain works (or doesn't).

I read that one, or another one he wrote. If I recall correctly he's published a LOT of case studies in a similar format.

Yeah. That was just the most memorable title for me. I was fascinated by abnormal psychology as a kid. I still am. I bought a textbook at a yard sale and absorbed it in my teens.
