Oliver Sacks brings humanity, poetic observation, & infectious sense of wonder to this narrative collection centered around neurological disorder. In An Anthropologist on Mars, Sacks presents seven case studies of people whose "abnormalities" of brain function offer new insights into conceptions of human personality & consciousness.

"The pieces in this collection are as much literature as they are science, the prose embedded firmly in the genre of the personal essay... Sacks does justice to his subjects, their torments & triumphs, & his larger subject, life itself." (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
