ON THE MOVE: A LIFE -- Oliver Sacks' memoir is a fascinating account of the author's remarkable life
On The Move: A Life by Oliver Sacks (2016, Vintage; 416 pages)
Oliver Sacks died last August, and during his lifetime he was educated as a neurologist, but what his memoir, "On the Move," reveals is that he was anything but a man with a singular interest. His career may have been in neurology, but his life was filled with activities as varied as bodybuilding, motorcycle riding, writing, and snorkeling. His memoir explores all these facets of his life, and makes clear just what an engaged, interested, and interesting man Sacks was. To learn more about Sacks, you can listen to a "Fresh Air" program that ran shortly after his death, but I also highly recommend reading his final book, "On the Move," which will allow you to spend some time with a fascinating man's thoughts.
