The Man Who Wasn't There: Investigations into the Strange New Science of the Self

Anil Ananthaswamy

In Anil Ananthaswamy's new book, he delves into the latest neuroscience research about major brain diseases like schizophrenia and autism, as well as some not-so-mainstream issues like out-of-body experiences and odd and rare mental disorders. With his leaning towards personal storytelling and case studies, Ananthaswamy is clearly influenced by the oeuvre of Oliver Sacks, but adds his own voice and style to the field.
