Review

Fascinating. Music, as Sacks explains, 'can pierce the heart directly'. And this is the truth that he so brilliantly focuses upon – that music saves, consoles and nourishes us. Source: Daily Mail

An elegantly outlined series of case studies . . . which reveal the depth to which music grips so many people. Source: Observer

From the Author

Oliver Sacks is a physician and the author of many books, including The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Awakenings (which inspired the Oscar-nominated film) and Musicophilia. Born in London and educated at Oxford, he held positions at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York University School of Medicine and was Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry at Columbia University. He is the first, and only, Columbia University Artist, and is also a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. In 2008, he was appointed Commander of the British Empire. His memoir, On the Move, was published shortly before his death in August 2015.
