Roberta's Pick: Famous for writings such as The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat, this small book of meditations by Dr Oliver Sacks is a beautiful read. Just 45 pages long and published just prior to his death at 82 from cancer, the four essays take in the full sweep of his life, his abiding belief in gratitude and his final words of wisdom on the power of retreating from the world as Jewish people do on the Sabbath. Pull back, eat with family and friends, let the world go its wild and woolly way all on its own for just twenty four little hours.
