On The Move

On the Move: A Life - Oliver Sacks

Way back when, I devoured The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Awakenings.  I heard about On The Move during the RadioLab tribute to Dr. Sacks soon after his death, so I gave it a go.  It was well enough done, but I didn’t find On The Move all that gripping.  Not being a devoted groupie, it wasn’t as interesting to read about the circumstances of Dr. Sacks’ life as it was to read the thoughtfully curated case histories and composite case histories of his earlier works.  I recommend this to people who already are familiar with Dr. Sacks’ other books and are interested in filling in around the corners about the man with the pen.
