Oliver Sacks

Revised and expanded
‘To Sacks a headache is a mine of treasures, a source of visions, a microcosm of human experience and suffering, the philosopher’s stone . . . A remarkable achievement’ Iain Gilchrist, Sunday Telegraph ‘Sacks is certainly telling us something – and we should listen to him . . . This book pushes no panaceas, but its humanity may prove helpful in reconciling us to darker sides of ourselves’ Roy Porter, Sunday Times ‘No migraine sufferer who has read the book will be cured, but at least he or she will know what migraine is and will no longer be afraid’ Anthony Clare, Mail on Sunday ‘When reading his lucid, classic prose even a tyro, even a sufferer, may feel encouraged . . . Both the doctor and patient are in the realm of the marvellous . . . those wondrous insights which have made him the most accessible and at the same time the most magisterial of doctors’ Anita Brookner, Spectator
