Dr. Oliver Sacks
has been writing about patients with unusual and fascinating case histories since the 1970s. In his new book, Musicophilia
, Dr. Sacks explores music and its relationship to the human brain, while introducing new and fascinating characters – from the man who, after being struck by lightning, found a new passion for piano, to Parkinson's patients who receive music therapy.
