" ... narra veinte historiales médicos de pacientes perdidos en el mundo extraño y aparentemente irremediable de las enfermedades neurológicas. Se trata de casos de individuos, aquejados por inauditas aberraciones de la percepción, y que, sin embargo, poseen insólitos dones artísticos o científicos. El doctor Sacks relata estos casos con pasión humana y gran talento literario. Son estudios que nos permiten acceder al universo de los enfermos nerviosos y comprender su situación. Como gran médico, Sacks nunca pierde de vista el cometido final de la medicina: "el sujeto humano que sufre y lucha"."--Contratapa.
