A Leg to Stand On (Audiobook)

A Leg to Stand On (Audiobook) By Oliver Sacks, read by Jonathan Davis
Unabridged edition 2011 | 7 hours and 6 minutes | ISBN: n/a , ASIN: B005745K9A | MP3 32 kbps | 205 MB

Dr. Oliver Sacks' books Awakenings, An Anthropologist on Mars, and the best-selling The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat have been acclaimed for their extraordinary compassion in the treatment of patients affected with profound disorders. In A Leg to Stand On, it is Sacks himself who is the patient: an encounter with a bull on a desolate mountain in Norway has left him with a severely damaged leg. But what should be a routine recuperation is actually the beginning of a strange medical journey when he finds that his leg uncannily no longer feels like part of his body.

Sacks's brilliant description of his crisis and eventual recovery is not only an illuminating examination of the experience of patienthood and the inner nature of illness and health but also a fascinating exploration of the physical basis of identity.
PLEASE NOTE: Some changes have been made to the original manuscript with the permission of Oliver Sacks.
