I would recommend this to friends who enjoy exploring the workings of the mind.
I would be willing to read another Oliver Sacks' book because his case studies are sometimes fascinating and it is clear that he has the personal experience to back up his work.
The book is expertly read. Where I would have stumbled over terminology, it was nice to have a narrator deliver the words smoothly.
I can't say that I was inspired, more than anything I felt a little fearful of what could potentially happen to my own mind.
The mind is an amazing and scary place! I think a layperson can definitely follow along, though it is occasionally bogged down with technical language that is obviously meant for the experts. Most of these case studies are the minute exception to the norm, but many of them are incredible. The most tragic common denominator for me is the fact that there are so many brain disorders that completely rob a person of purpose and happiness. The good part, I guess, is that some of them don't know it.
