Oliver Sacks: His Own Life

Exploring the life and work of legendary neurologist and storyteller Oliver Sacks, he shares intimate details of his battles with drug addiction, homophobia, and a medical establishment that accepted his work only decades after the fact. Sacks was a fearless explorer of unknown mental worlds who helped redefine our understanding of the brain and mind, the diversity of human experience, and our shared humanity.

Believing the human brain is the "most incredible thiong in the universe", Oliver Sacks devoted his life to his own disorders and unusual experiences, and spoke to the public in a way that raised awareness like never before. An author of best-selling book and hundreds of articles, his experiences were adapted for the 1990 film Awakenings starring Robin Williams and Robert DeNiro.
