Sacks, Oliver (1995) An Anthropologist on Mars- Seven Paradoxical Tales
Sacks, Oliver (1995) "An Anthropologist on Mars: Seven Paradoxical Tales". New York: Alfred A. Knopf.
Oliver Sacks spent time observing and living alongside Stephen Wiltshire (Chapter 6, "Prodigies") and Temple Grandin (Chapter 7, "An anthropologist on Mars") to develop insightful dexcriptions of what it means to be autistic. This is not a clinical work, but an attempt by the clinician to bring the subjects' lives and words to a broad readership.
