«Provocative but often funny, encyclopedic but down to earth...Hustvedt's erudite book deepens one's wonder about the relation of body and mind.»

Oliver Sacks

«Readers of Oliver Sacks will rate this book highly; as with Sacks, scientific knowledge and a powerful capacity for empathy are closely linked...It is Hustvedt's gift to write with exemplary clarity of what is by necessity unclear.»

Hilary Mantel, <i>Guardian</i>

«She thinks her way through complex subject matter with the effortless clarity of a poised and sceptical outsider...a short book with an encyclopaedic breadth»

Lisa Appignanesi, <i>Independent</i>

«She has an enviable ability to digest and reframe her discoveries into clear, accessible prose»

Melanie McGrath, <i>Sunday Telegraph</i>

«Fascinating...what gives the book its originality is that she wavers on the edge of the various disciplines, preferring her own imaginative, deeply personal reflections to the potential certainty that might be offered by doctors...Although a desire for clear-cut answers is understandable, Hustvedt suggests that this is often far from possible. And she leaves the reader thinking about his or her own bouts of illness in a thoroughly fresh way.»

Lorna Bradbury, <i>Daily Telegraph</i>
