The River of Consciousness, Oliver Sacks: 2020 #7

An engaging set of essays, mostly on aspects of consciousness. How we perceive time to pass. Memory. Creativity. Feelings of disorder.
Good use of footnotes to keep the flow going, but allowing the reader to delve a little deeper if they wish. Full of good examples.
Clear, fun writing.
It showed Sacks to be full of curiosity, prolific, a man who had an idea of who he wanted to be, and knew what inspired him, from an early age. A man who kept notebooks to record his thoughts. This book even published, on his instruction, after his death. A little bit inspiring.
