Before getting this audio book, I was aware that this was an interview, but I was not aware that Dr. Oliver Sacks is not terribly good when being interviewed. Mr. Robert Krulwich who interviewed him and he was very dynamic speaker and he makes jokes, managing to engage me in the interview, but when Dr. Sacks comes on, even though his stories themselves are interesting, he makes them boring and he stutters slightly. It's not his accent that's not the problem, it's the little importance he seems to place in making us excited about the patients, who sound like they are a blast do be around, but when he talks he does not convey that feeling. It is only because I am fascinated by the subject, that I found some enjoyment, but I would not recommend it to a friend.
