Lisa Genova's six favorite books about science & literature

Neuroscientist Lisa Genova is the author of the best-selling novels Still Alice and Left Neglected.

One of her six favorite books about science and literature, as told to The Week magazine:
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks

A collection of case studies describing patients with extraordinary neurological impairments, told with compassion and an infectious curiosity about how the mind works. Sacks’s book ignited my passion for neuroscience.
Read about the other books on the list.
