    1. It's rare that I read non-fiction. It's just not my bag.That said, this is one of the most fascinating books I've ever read. I'm guessing I've brought it up hundreds of times in conversation.It's written by a neurologist who works with people who have stranger-than-usual brain issues. And not only are the cases interesting, but the way he writes about the people invovled is really lovely. It's not clinical at all. Not judgemental. It's very loving, I would say. It's interesting to see someone wh [...]


    2. Dear Dr. Sacks, On page 112 of the paperback edition of your book, the second paragraph begins with the following sentence:"And with this, no feeling that he has lost feeling (for the feeling he has lost), no feeling that he has lost the depth, that unfathomable, mysterious, myriad-levelled depth which somehow defines identity or reality."I've read this sentence at least twelve times, and I still don't even have the slightest inkling of what the hell it means. What is the subject? What is the ve [...]


    3. كيف يمكن لإنسانٍ أن يخسر هويته ولا يدري خسارتهكيف يتحول معنى الهوية بروحه إلى لا معنى،،إلى لاشئ؟في هذا الكتاب تتعلم من جديد إحترام الإنسانية فجنون أدب العبث ولامنطقيته يتجسد هنا في نماذج حقيقة لبشرٍ يفتشون عن بقاياهم المتناثرة في الكون العابث بهم والمنتظر لردود أفعالهم ال [...]


    4. Despite so many people recommending this book, my high expectations were disappointed. Yes, it's perversely interesting to hear about neurological conundrums that afflict people in peculiar ways, but Sacks isn't a particularly good writer, nor does he have a good grasp on his audience. At times he obliquely refers to medical syndromes or footnotes other neurologists, as if he is writing for a technical physician audience, but on the whole his stories are too simplistic to engage such an audience [...]


    5. This is not only an informative work on neurological disorders, but a humbling meditation on the beauty of imperfection. Through entering the worlds of a number of "limited" individuals, Sacks reveals the brain's (and therefore the individual's) remarkable ability to overcompensate for cognitive deficiencies. As a result of these heightened states of perception, the often frightening and infinitely compelling worlds of each individual are manifested in the means with which they organize and enga [...]


    6. 10★This is such a classic that I can’t possibly “review” it, so I’ll just share some stories. Oliver Sacks was the much-loved, highly regarded neurologist who opened up the world of the mind and brain not only to doctors but also to the public. The well-known movie, Awakenings, where he was played by Robin Williams, was based on his successful treatment of catatonic patients (including Leonard, played by Robert De Niro), “frozen” for decades after being afflicted with encephalitis. [...]


    7. کتاب جالبیه در مورد ذهن انسان که از کِیس اِستادی های زیادی تشکیل شده که نویسنده خودش به شخصه دیده یا مورد مطالعه قرار داده. توضیحاتی که در مورد اختلالات نورولوژی میده تحسین برانگیزه. اینکه چطور بعضی وقتا یه اختلال ساده در ذهن باعث ایجاد یه حس شخصی یا حتی باعث ایجاد استعداد قوی [...]


    8. I first heard about this book when my biology professor mentioned it in class in reference to right-brain and left-brain disorders. Just last year, I had the good fortune to see the author himself - Dr. Sacks - speak at the university in my hometown. He was a dynamic and entertaining speaker and from then on, I resolved to try out his books. The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat matched its author. The book is a collection of case studies on Dr. Sacks's patients with neurological disorders. Sac [...]


    9. I picked up this book because I am a fan of Oliver Sacks and his various speaking engagements (lectures, public radio interviews, etc)but I have to say I was fairly nonplussed with it.While the case studies in and of themselves make for interesting reading, the tone of the writing is fairly "clinical" and.ed. Despite the review blurbs stating that these are "personal" and "touchingly human" looks at neurological disorders, I saw only a few glimpses of this warmth (an example that springs to mind [...]


    10. The Man who Mistook His Wife for a Hat is a book about people with neurological disorders centred on issues with perception and understanding the world. The brain receives so much information each second, information we will never be consciously aware of. But what happens when the pathways start to break down? Weird and wonderful things evidently. Sacks reminisces over some truly bizarre case studies he encountered over his career. And, like the title suggests, one involves a man who mistook his [...]


    11. من أجمل ما قرأت في هذه السنة. لقد غيّر هذا الكتاب الكثير من المفاهيم الخاصة بالذاكرة عندي. كما تغيّرت عندي مفاهيم أخرى تتعلق بحالات الجنون والاكتئاب والحالات النفسية.هذا الكتاب ليس كتاباً طبياً، أو نفسياً، أو تجارياً. بل هو كتاب إنساني بالمقام الأول.هل تعرف قيمة ذاكرتك أيها [...]


    12. Dr. Oliver Sacks was a physician, author, and professor of neurology who published several books about individuals with neurological problems. In this book Dr. Sacks discusses patients whose brain malfunctions cause a variety of 'maladies' including: a musician who lost the ability to see faces or recognize familiar objects; a former sailor who believed the year was permanently 1945; a man who thought his leg belonged to someone else; and other unusual afflictions. To provide a feel for the book [...]


    13. I guess I'm just not smart enough to fully appreciate this book. But I do realize that an awful lot can go wrong with our brains, and when that should happen to me, I would be very lucky with such an empathetic and humane doctor. Yet, his writing is dry and clinical, which is a shame because there were really interesting cases. I enjoyed reading some parts of the book, but not enough to feel satisfied about reading this book. Especially the chapter "The Visions of Hildegard", in which he describ [...]


    14. وعندما همَّ السيد "بي" بالمغادرة ، ودَّع الطبيب و مدَّ يده ليتناول قبعته وأمسك بدلاً منها برأس زوجته ومن هنا جاءت تسمية الكتاب (الرجل الذي حسب زوجته قبعة) ، ولمعرفة السبب والتفاصيل أدعوكم لقراءة الكتابالكتاب يتناول مجموعة من الاضطرابات العصبية الغريبة و النادرة، مشروحة بطر [...]


    15. بعد قراءة أكثر من200 صفحة من الكتابأى ما يقرب من ثلثيهأتوقف وأقرر قراءة النسخة الانجليزية الأصلية في وقت لاحق*ما لي أنا وترجمة تصير العدوى فيها اخماج وال cranium قحف؟؟!!*


    16. مراجعة مختصرة جدا لمن ليس لديه وقت: كتاب جميل يجمع بين الرصانة العلمية ومتعة الحكايات وله عمق إنساني مؤثر.مراجعة مختصرة لمن لديه القليل من الوقت:مجموعة قصصية نسجها المؤلف من حالات عاينها شخصياً ظاهرها الظرافة وباطنها البؤس. كتاب ممتع ينصح بقراءته إذا تمكن القارئ من التعامل [...]


    17. I read this book years ago and maybe Sacks was a more skilled doctor than writer but a lot will depend on why you're reading this book to begin with. I felt, still do, that Dr. Sacks humanised his patients and that's not necessarily easy given the subject. The brain has such layers of complexity that are not fully understood. Sacks attempts to issue clarity on the matter, no pun meant, it could happen to you or a loved one~ trauma, a stroke, lasting or transient confusion. To have someone in you [...]


    18. هذا الكتاب مؤثر وذا قيمةعالية في محتواه فذكريات الماضي المؤلمة المتراكمة أو هوس االخوف من مجهول المستقبل يرهق أعصابنا ويؤثر في أدمغتنا لحد التلف , في الكتاب قصص مؤثرة للدكتور الكاتب يستفاد بها دروساً لمجمل حياتنا أنصح به


    19. Review to come. This was a hard one to rate. Lots of 5 star sections but some needless academic jargon, particularly in the introductions to sections. I can see why this is considered a classic. Such fascinating case histories. The brain is truly a mysterious thing.


    20. [English / Arabic review]الريفيو العربي بعد الريفيو الإنجليزي" Is there any 'place' in the world for a man who is like an island, who cannot be accultured, made part of the main? Can 'the main' accommodate, make room for, the singular? "That was the main inquiry of this insightful, compassionate, moving and Remarkable book the lucidity and power of a gifted writer.A wonderful book full of wonder, wonders and wondering. Sacks brings to these often unhappy people un [...]


    21. This book isn't easy to review, because it's not a novel, or short story collection; it's not poetry, or essays. It's straight up non-fiction in the form of case studies and clinical analysis of different bizarre neurological cases that Oliver Sacks came across. There's everything from the titular character -- a man who really did mistake his wife for his hat -- to people with Tourette's, both severe and manageable; from excesses to people with IQs of 60 but who possess amazing talents.There is [...]


    22. Over the course of his long career as a neurologist, Sacks has had plenty of interesting cases. It makes you appreciate what a complex organ the brain is when you see all the different ways that impairments can manifest themselves. Sacks is at his best when he's describing the most unusual quirks. The first chapter -- the case that gives the book its title -- is a good lead-in to the weird behaviors that follow.At the time the book was written, these disorders must have seemed even more unusual. [...]


    23. هذا الكتاب المُذهل الرائع يقدم لك فرضية مُخيفة ومرعبة بمضمونها، لكنها - وللأسف - تحدث كثيراً المرعب في الأمر أنه لا أحد يعلم بحدوثها حتى تحصل إنتكاسة أو ميلان غير طبيعي في التصرفات. تخيل معي لبرهة شكل الدماغ الإنساني، هو يتكون من فصين ( أيمن وأيسر )، من المعروف أن الفص الأيسر ي [...]


    24. حقا الذي وصف هذا الكتاب بانه الف ليلة وليله في الامراض وفي الحياة صدقهذا الكتاب دون شك من اعجب واغرب واجمل ما قرأتليس فقط لان كل فصل كان يتناول مرض عصبي او ادراكي من اغرب مايكونولكن لان الطبيب او الكاتب ساكس كان بيتكلم عن كل شخصية بانسانية جدا بيوصف ادق حاجة في كل مريض تحس انه [...]


    25. Nörolojik çarpıcı vakaları anlatan kitap cidden çok etkileyiciydi. Kurgu olmayan roman tarzında bir çok önemli bilgi içeren bir kitaptı. İnsana yaşadığı her anın ne kadar değerli olduğunu hissettiriyor kitaptaki olayları yaşayan hastalar. Etkileyiciydi.


    26. "He both was and wasn't aware of this deep, tragic loss in himself, loss of himself. If a man has lost a leg or an eye, he knows he has lost a leg or an eye; but if he has lost a self -himself- he cannot know it, because he is no longer there to know it."If you enjoy medical case histories that are sensitive yet lively, weird but informative, then Sacks' book is your ticket.A neurologist that will fascinate you with stories of patients like the man in the title: a professor who couldn't recogniz [...]


    27. A few quick notes. I picked this up as an audiobook from Kindle Unlimited and although some of the medical terminology was beyond my normal understanding I found the book fascinating, but probably not in the way it was intended. Our senses take in all of the information we use and it is the brain that takes that information and puts it into, what we think is, normal perspective. There are common things like color blindness which leads me to wonder how that world would look. It is not devastating [...]


    28. Yine bir Sacks şaheseri. fizyoloji ve psikoloji arasındaki bağı ortaya koyarken hem bu kader sade hem de bu kadar teknik olmayı nasıl başarıyor hayranım doğrusu. Bir gerilim filminden bile daha etkileyici hikayeleri sıralarken güzel de bir çerçeve çiziyor; önce kayıplardan sonra aşırılıklardan bahsedip en sonunda basit olmanın değeri ve güzelliğini vurguluyor. Müzik matematik ve doğaişte tüm ihtiyacımız, tüm müştereğimiz bu :))


    29. Dry. Reading this book is like eating saltine crackers without anything to drink. He only briefly discusses the cases (these are, ahem, the interesting parts of the book) and then embarks on tedious philosophical discussions about neurology. He does seem very proud of himself and his education, though; I will give him that as a backhanded compliment.


    30. Very interesting neurological case studies that begged me to reconsider intelligence and "normalcy" particularly in terms of visual perception and its relationship to reality. Also fascinating was the profound structure that the arts (he specifically mentions music, dance, story-telling and drawing) provide for those with the inability to form or develop conceptual frameworks. Indeed, it seems that the fine arts aren't just high-concepts of beauty and art, but healing mechanisms crucial to many [...]
