To say that he has lived life to the fullest would be a severe understatement; he has filled his life with enough adventure and excitement to occupy four lifetimes, and he is still going (and may he continue to do so for many years, in spite of his cancer). His openness and honesty in "On the Move" is spectacular, moving, and one feels as though he is having a fireside conversation with Sacks himself. There is so much I never knew about him, so much that I almost found hard to believe! (You'll understand this as you read through the book). What a man, what a life!
As a student who will be starting his first year at medical school this August, I can say that I aspire to be half the man that Oliver Sacks has become. He is part of the reason that I have fallen even more in love with the medical field, particularly neurology and psychiatry. There is much to learn from this book, regardless of one's profession, interests, and background. There is so much more to say, but I'm no wordsmith as Sacks is, so I'll let you read it for yourself. It is my hope that you enjoy every page, sentence, and carefully crafted word that Oliver Sacks has used to print his life onto paper. As Albert Schweitzer said, "my life is my argument," and no doubt Sacks will embody this message until the end.
