Apracticing physician and professor of neurology and psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center, Sacks is a “modern master of the case study,” according to the New York Times Book Review, known for his ability to describe the intricacies of the medical world using accessible and engaging prose. In The Mind’s Eye, Sacks explores some of the fundamental facets of human experience through case studies of the complex interplay between sight and mind.
