This month's book is Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain by
Oliver Sacks. It is described on Amazon as:
Oliver Sacks’s compassionate, compelling tales of people struggling to adapt to different neurological conditions have fundamentally changed the way we think of our own brains, and of the human experience. In Musicophilia, he examines the powers of music through the individual experiences of patients, musicians, and everyday people—from a man who is struck by lightning and suddenly inspired to become a pianist at the age of forty-two, to an entire group of children with Williams syndrome, who are hypermusical from birth; from people with “amusia,” to whom a symphony sounds like the clattering of pots and pans, to a man whose memory spans only seven seconds—for everything but music.
As always, you can go to the VBC website (http://veganbookclub.com) and suggest/vote for books you want to read for upcoming discussions. If you suggest the book that gets selected, you plan the meetup :)
