When Oliver Sacks injured his leg climbing a mountain, he found himself in an unusual position - that of patient. Though initially straightforward to treat, Sacks went on to experience paralysis and an inability to perceive his leg as his own, instead seeing it as some kind of alien and inanimate object. A Leg To Stand On is both an account of Sacks' ordeal and subsequent recovery, and an exploration of the ways in which mind and body are inextricably linked.
