Selection: The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester
“Neil Gaiman says in his introduction to the reprint of this book that "Nothing dates harder and faster and more strangely than the future." Nearly everything I study didn't exist ten years ago. Bester's interplanetary retelling of the Count of Monte Cristo reminds me that technology may be changing at breakneck speed, but humans rarely do, and that the power of technology is in how it transforms not the world but individuals."

Selection: The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks
“I read this book as a teenager and it quickly inspired me to pursue a career devoted to determining the relationship between brain and behavior. This book is comprised of short narratives of the author's clinical cases, which is told in a very approachable and compassionate way. It left me wanting to know more about how the brain leads to these varied and sometimes very bizarre behaviors. I have recommended it to all of my students who have been intrigued by the complexities of the brain.”

Selection: The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks
“The book was required reading in a writing course that I took in my freshman year at The American University. I was a literature major at the time and I was beginning to realize that my love of reading was rooted in a desire to understand the human mind in all of its diversity. In “The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat”, Oliver Sacks wrote with tremendous insight and sympathy about the extreme cases of bizarre behaviors and abilities that he observed in his medical practice. I admired his understanding of human behavior as it is determined by the normal, or abnormal, brain. “The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat” inspired me to study the brain for a better understanding of the mind. “
