Interview with Oliver Sacks

Studs, Sacks, & Left Handed Skills

Called the poet laureate of medicine by the New York Times, Oliver Sacks knows more about the quirks of the human mind than most. Thankfully, his great knowledge is equaled by his ability to express complex concepts in an engaging way that anyone can understand. Some of his most popular works include Musicophelia and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat.

In this 1995 interview with Oliver Sacks, Studs explores the idea of “left-handed skills”, how people adapt to disability, and Oliver Sacks’s book, An Anthropologist on Mars.
