Product Description

The legendary neurologist examines the power of music and how it affects the brain. With his trademark compassion and erudition, Oliver Sacks depicts the variety of what he calls 'musical misalignments.' Among them: a man who is struck by lightning and suddenly inspired to become a pianist at the age of forty-two; an entire group of children who are hypermusical from birth; 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. Bibliography, Index. 425p.
