With his usual elegance, curiosity, and compassion, Dr. Sacks weaves together stories of his patients and of his own mind-altering experiences to illuminate what hallucinations tell us about the organization and structure of our brains, how they have influenced every culture's folklore and art, and why the potential for hallucination is present in us all, a vital part of the human condition

A fascinating and (seemingly) comprehensive tour through hallucinations. There is an enthusiasm in the writing that comes through and infects the listener. The reading is excellent (though not done by Sacks himself (to correct the previous comment)), even the small portions where he puts on accents to mimic quoted authors. Whether its losses of traditional senses (sight, hearing, taste) or of limbs, brain injuries, or drugs, there's nothing that is left unclear.

Sacks' voice is wonderful to listen to, and makes his writing even more vivid. Recommended.
