Oliver Sacks tells the story of breaking his leg during a solo climbing expedition and his recovery, from the perspective of a neurologist. You’d think this would be dry and boring. He makes it spiritual and poetic, a primer that could be applicable to any illness. After the accident and post-surgery to repair his leg, he noticed that he felt like his leg wasn’t part of him anymore. It had become invisible and he couldn’t feel it. After watching the PBS documentary, I promised myself I would read this book and was well rewarded.
