I mean, it was interesting, but the book easily could have been 1/5 its actual length. everything is repeated over and over and it gets really old/ boring.
The book is a mix of interesting case study flooded with introspective philosophy on that nature of humanity, consciousness and perception, told in beautiful language, that ultimately concludes with a validation of mental impairments because they expose elements of our humanity rather than erase them.
Overall, a unique book that is worth a read.
I am fascinated by the cases the author writes and have always been interested in the blurred line between the neurological and the psychological events that play out as pathologies. Excellent book that probes this phenomena.
I love a good book
I've read this book several times and don't mind coming back to it. It's informative and interesting. Such strange stories about real people and the different neurological illnesses that beset them. Even though it's filled with neurological observations, the author's compassion comes through clearly. He really does care about these patients.
An interesting read that I keep coming back to.
While his stories are very readable and entertaining, this degree of spirituality (or, indeed, any) from a clinician is, quite frankly, disturbing.
