This is a collection of essays on various topics that was compiled and published after Sacks' death As such there isn't much of an overarching theme across the pieces and the ones I enjoyed mostly retold or reframed stories from his previous books particularly The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat An Anthropologist on Mars Musicophilia Hallucinations and A Leg To Stand On If you haven't read those I'd recommend them over this one Still Sacks was an incredibly thoughtful and wise writer and I don't regret reading this at all

A fairly mixed bag of variable uality Essays on Darwin Time Freud and All were beautifully written and superficially interesting but never really inspiring and rarely thought provoking I read an essay stopped momentarily and then moved onto the next one Yes I did enjoy reading it but I also sensed a lack of depth or coherence I didn’t associate with Sacks

I have found that as I've read books written later in Sacks' life his tone shifts from a focus on specific details to a abstract and comprehensive overview that delves into the meanings of his life's observations The River of Consciousness was for me an excellent culmination of that change in tone and focus Sacks writes about all areas of science with such grace and art that you can't help but be completely consumed There were moments in The River of Consciousness especially towards the beginning where I detected a change in tone or voice that may be indicative of the ghost writing involved in finishing this book but the majority of the book and latter half especially filled me with enough awe and fascination that I would still consider this one of my favorite Sacks reads I will miss his writing dearly and I am sure I will be revisiting his books often
