    ------

    “Powerful and compassionate. . . . A book that not only contributes to our understanding of the elusive
    magic of music but also illuminates the strange workings, and misfirings, of the human mind.” —The New York
    Times“Curious, cultured, caring. . . . Musicophilia allows readers to join Sacks where he is most alive, amid melodies
    and with his patients.” —The Washington Post Book World“Sacks has an expert bedside manner: informed but humble,
    self-questioning, literary without being self-conscious.”—Los Angeles Times“Sacks spins one fascinating tale after
    another to show what happens when music and the brain mix it up.” —Newsweek“Sacks once again examines the many mysteries
    of a fascinating subject.” —The Seattle Times

    About the Author
    ----------------

    Oliver Sacks was a physician, writer, and professor of neurology. Born in London in 1933, he moved to New York City in
    1965, where he launched his medical career and began writing case studies of his patients. Called the “poet laureate of
    medicine” by The New York Times, Sacks is the author of more than a dozen books, including The Man Who Mistook His Wife
    for a Hat, Musicophilia, and Awakenings, which inspired an Oscar-nominated film and a play by Harold Pinter. He was the
    recipient of many awards and honorary degrees, and was made a Commander of the British Empire in 2008 for services to
    medicine. He died in 2015.
