Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain By Oliver Sacks
In Musicophilia, Oliver Sacks explores the place music occupies in the brain and how it affects the human condition. He shows us a variety of what he calls "musical misalignments." Among them? A man struck by lightning who suddenly desires to become a pianist at the age of forty-two. People with "amusia," to whom a symphony sounds like the clattering of pots and pans, and a man whose memory spans only seven seconds-for everything but music. Illuminating, inspiring, and utterly unforgettable, Musicophilia is Oliver Sacks' latest masterpiece.
