From the collection of Jim Silberman, Sacks' publisher and editor at Summit Books, who guided a few of Sacks' key titles to print, most influentially this volume, which became a bestseller and made Sacks a household name. Sacks called Silberman "an important influence in my life [who] can spot the heart of the piece quicker than anyone else. He always gets a bullseye."
