Well, I seem to be on "HOLD" for "Anthropologist on Mars" but I don't see where I can indicate pick up at the BALLARD branch library.

Very confusing--but then, I'm not very adept with internet order/request forms.
sorry,

Another amazing compilation of the experiences of seven of Sacks' patients who demonstrate the key role of the brain as the final interpreter of our senses.

I love Oliver Sacks. Intelligent, interesting, and understandable by those who don't necessarily have a background in neurology or sociology. Don't forget to check out The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, and The Island of the Colorblind.
