Description: It was in his book "Awakenings" that Oliver Sacks first demonstrated his gifts as "one of the great clinical writers of the 20th century" (The New York Times Book Review). "Awakenings" is the remarkable account of a group of patients who contracted sleeping-sickness during the great epidemic just after World War I. Frozen in a decades-long sleep, these men and women were given up as hopeless until Dr. Sacks gave them the then new drug L-DOPA, which had an astonishing, explosive, "awakening" effect. Dr. Sacks presents the moving case histories of these individuals, the stories of their lives, and the extraordinary transformation they underwent with his treatment. This definitive edition, which includes an essay on the making of the film of "Awakenings," is a passionate exploration of "the most general questions of health, disease, suffering, care, and the human condition."
