Uncle Tungsten PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Uncle Tungsten free pdf Oliver Sacks turns his trained analytical eye on a startling new subject - himself. This memoir from Oliver Sacks is both a departure from and an enhancement of his previous psychologically orientated 'medical' writing. Not only is it a beautifully written account of an English childhood - seasoned by a childish passion for science - but it is told from the intimate and revelatory perspective of one of the most important and humane writers on psychology alive today. Oliver Sacks has the literary artistry of WH Auden and the intellectual rigour and questioning mind of Stephen Jay Gould. The world authority in his field, this is a remarkable insight into the mind and background of one of the finest and most accessible scientists today - case history as literature, in the most personal, delightful and fascinating way possible.
