Year 2, Book 70

70. The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks
I collection of stories about people with bizarre neurological problems written by neurologist Oliver Sacks. He is the guy who was the doctor portrayed by Robin Williams in the movie Awakenings. Also incidentally a book by him. It was a fairy interesting book. Definitely some bizarre problems. And I was amused to see that one of the writers from the show House must have read the book as the book contains the story of a woman in her 80s who has her sex drive majorly reawakened after syphilis she contracted as a teenager causes her brain damage. It was the same exact story that one of House’s clinic patients had. I give the book a 7 out of 10.
