內容簡介

神經醫學作家奧利佛.薩克斯自傳,2015年出版

你可能看過《睡人》、讀過《錯把太太當帽子的人》,
熟知薩克斯在腦神經學的成就,經常在暢銷書排行榜上看到他的著作,
但不知道這名醫師作家,還是運動、攝影好手、摩托車愛好者。
2015年初,高齡81歲的薩克斯醫師在《紐約時報》公開他癌末的消息,表示「雖並非全然無懼,但我心充滿感謝…歷經愛與被愛,我受益良多,也懂得回饋。」
同年8月,薩克斯辭世… …

《On the Move:A Life》是留給讀者們最佳的紀念。

年僅12歲時,老師即預見薩克斯「未來若非卓越超群,也將成就非凡。」
因為他總是充滿旺盛的能量和好奇心,熱於追求知識,和生命中喜愛的事物。

這本迷人的自傳,除談論科學、寫作,也誠實分享私領域中不同面向,

富含生命力的人生故事,激勵讀者反思:活著,如何才能不枉此生?


奧立佛‧薩克斯〈Oliver Sacks〉
1933年生於倫敦,後移居紐約市,為臨床神經科醫師,並於醫學院擔任教職。

薩克斯醫生於一九七四年出版《睡人》,把腦神經病人的臨床案例寫成深刻感人的

之後,以充滿人文關懷的筆觸,陸續寫下《錯把太太當帽子的人》、《火星上的人類學家》、《腦袋裡裝了2000齣歌劇的人》、《幻覺》等代表作。文章亦經常刊載於《紐約書評》和《紐約客》雜誌。


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, where he discovered a long forgotten illness in the back wards of a chronic hospital, as well as with a group of patients who would define his life, it becomes clear that Sacks' earnest desire for engagement has occasioned unexpected encounters and travels - sending him through bars and alleys, over oceans, and across continents. With unbridled honesty and humour, Sacks shows us that the same energy that drives his physical passions - bodybuilding, weightlifting, and swimming - also drives his cerebral passions. He writes about his love affairs, both romantic and intellectual, his guilt over leaving his family to come to America, his bond with his schizophrenic brother, and the writers and scientists - A.R. Luria, W.H. Auden, Francis Crick - who influenced him. 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.
