Today in Literature

July 9, 2009

9 July 1933: Noted neurologist and author Oliver Sacks was born in London on this date.  I have primarily encounted Sacks through the podcast from WNYC called Radio Lab.  He is a interesting man with a unique voice who has performed some extraordinary research and wonderful treatments for patients with seemingly permanent mental damage.  He has published several books that are surprisingly accessible to the non-scientist–most recently Musicophilia in 2007.

Happy birthday Dr. Sacks.
