Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Gratitude and On the Move, a final volume of essays that showcase Sacks's broad range of interests - from his passion for ferns, swimming, and horsetails, to his final case histories exploring schizophrenia, dementia, and Alzheimer's.

Oliver Sacks, scientist and storyteller, is beloved for his neurological case histories and his fascination and familiarity with human behavior at its most unexpected and unfamiliar. Everything in Its Place is a celebration of Sacks' myriad interests, told with his characteristic compassion and erudition, and in his luminous prose.

Includes a PDF with the bibliography, permission and acknowledgements, and a note about the author.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

“In this lovely collection of previously unpublished essays, the late, celebrated author and neurologist muses on his career, his youth, the mental health field and much more.... Sacks’s gentle, ruminative voice is a slave when investigating difficult subject matter but there are plenty of lighter moments as well...[this] final collection is a treat for the chronically curious.” (Publisher’s Weekly)

Oliver Sacks is gone

This was a great ending to life devoted to science and the understanding of the human condition . I enjoyed it thoroughly because of the content, it’s accessibility, and because of the profound insights that Sacks gives as a goodbye.
