Talking Points

Famed neurologist and author Oliver Sacks died yesterday, August 30th, 2015. People who loved his writings will surely miss his humor, charm, and insight.

In honor of his passing, I've put together a collection of his writings. Perhaps after seeing some of these you will recall a favorite passage of his in a book that you've already read, or you may discover something new you would like to read.
