The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales

By Oliver Sacks

This book has been around for a long time (since 1970 with updates in 1985), but it is a real gem. Oliver Sacks, neurologist, discusses his unusual case histories. Knowing what we know about  autism (and having more sophisticated ways to detect abnormalities in the brain)–it is clear when reading this book that Oliver Sacks was ahead of his time. He adds a very human element to all his recordings of unusual things that can go wrong with the brain and body.
