When Oliver Sacks was twelve years old, a perceptive schoolmaster wrote in his report: 'Sacks will go far, if he does not go too far'. It is now abundantly clear that Sacks has never stopped going. From its opening pages on his youthful obsession with motorcycles and speed, 'On the Move' is infused with his restless energy. As he recounts his experiences as a young neurologist in the early 1960s, first in California and then in New York, it becomes clear that Sacks's earnest desire for engagement has occasioned unexpected encounters and travels. 'On the Move' is the story of a brilliantly unconventional physician and writer - and of the man who has illuminated the many ways that the brain makes us human.
