Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. This book tells their stories in fascinating detail while raising fundamental questions about psychotherapy-does it work?

The case of the eponymous character is one of the most fascinating where a man falls in love with a polar bear at the circus where he works. It is also quite a cathartic read which can show how things in our past can drastically shape our future. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales is a 1985 book by neurologist Oliver Sacks describing the case histories of some of his patients. Sacks chose the title of the book from the case study of one of his patients which he names "Dr. P" that has visual agnosia, a neurological condition that leaves him unable to recognize even familiar faces and objects. Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat became the basis of an opera of the same name by Michael Nyman, which premiered in 1986.

A collection of case studies by an eminent American psychologist who, nearing retirement, decided to track down his most memorable patients to see how they were faring fifteen to twenty five years later. The case studies form a meditation on the nature of analysis and the way we live our lives. Originally published in 1996.
  • Towards the end of his working life, Robert Akeret sets out to see whether his work has achieved its goal. Have his past patients gone on to live fulfilling, if not normal lives? He contacts a number of his patients and relates the condition for which they came in for treatment and the experience of recontacting the patient and finding out what has become of them. Sounds pretty ordinary, however as usual, truth is stranger than fiction and the conditions that he has dealt with are sometimes strange beyond belief. A totally absorbing read. A shame it is not readily available.

  • i found this book in a warehouse book sale and i was intrigued by its title (need i say more?). though brown-paged and a little bent on the front cover, the marked down price was reasonable enough for purchase. and am i glad i bought it! i've never read such an entertaining psych book, it's almost like reading a scintillating short story (of his 5 memorable patients). if you're like me who is only interested in novels that have engaging wordplay and not too much of complicated, freudian psychobabble, this is the book for you. stuffy freudian psychobabblians will also like this book as it does not give out a too commercial feel in its writing. in short, a book both loved by critics and readers.
