A neurologist with a deeply curious mind, Oliver Sacks possessed a remarkable ability to express his sense of humanity and wonder, which made him one of our favorite science writers. This final collection of essays, published posthumously, is one last gift to his readers, on topics ranging from Sacks's passions for swimming, ferns, and horsetails to his revealing, ever-fascinating case histories exploring conditions like schizophrenia, dementia, and Alzheimer's.
"Wonderfully odd…. Life bursts through all of Oliver Sacks's writing. He was and will remain a brilliant singularity. It's hard to call to mind one dull passage in his work—one dull sentence, for that matter."—NYTBR
"A postscript to a brilliant career…. Whether discussing botany or the intricacies of the brain, Sacks writes with the natural candor and wisdom of a great teacher. Everything in Its Place is his thoroughly illuminating last word. He will be missed."—Shelf Awareness
