Narrator Dan Woren's deep middle-American voice won't be mistaken for the reedier British tones of the late Oliver Sacks, and fans familiar with that voice may miss some of Sacks's sprightliness. However, Woren's reading is solid and easy to follow, and none of the wonder of Sacks's thinking is lost--particularly, his ability to synergize theories and concepts across scientific disciplines in a deeply personal way. Sacks begins with plants and moves through insects, animals, and finally to human beings as he explores consciousness: What is it? Who or what has it? How have we understood or misunderstood it across time? This audio presentation allows one to leave one's eyes free to gaze out on a world transformed by what one is hearing.
