On the Move: A Life

Oliver Sacks

Few people can claim to have made such a profound impact on the public understanding of the brain and its inner workings. In this book, Oliver Sacks describes his time at Oxford University, his time spent in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the early nineteen sixties, before moving on to chart his progression from young doctor to his public role as a neurologist and author.

Here we see Sacks’s private passions - among them, motorcycling, weightlifting, travel, and botany - placed alongside his professional life. He will also explore his most formative relationships - with Francis Crick, Thom Gunn, W. H. Auden and Stephen Jay Gould - and write about his regard for those thinkers who have influenced his own work, including A. R. Luria, William James and Charles Darwin.
