I never read non-fiction, but this was just. so. fascinating! Sacks' style is conversational and warm--never sterile nor overly academic. If I were in need of a world-renowned neurologist, I'd certainly be seeking out Sacks, who is clearly a compassionate and involved scientist. If you've ever found yourself curious about how music affects your brain, or why you just can't get that song out of your head, or how music might help those with (X, Y, Z) disease, this is the book for you.
