Audible Editor Reviews

One of the great medical writers of our time, British neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks has been called the "poet laureate of medicine" by The New York Times. Speaking with Radiolab's Robert Krulwich, Dr. Sacks expands on the connection between music and the mind, the subject of his book Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain. Dr. Sacks has an elegant voice that contrasts appealingly with Krulwich's dry tones, and he demonstrates his unique ability to describe and explain medical and psychological topics in a graceful and accessible way.
