Oliver Sacks, MD, was a man in motion. He was a motorcyclist, mile-a-day swimmer, weight lifter, and traveler to exotic lands. He wrote 13 books,1-13 several of which were best sellers. Part of the proceeds of these sales are now in the Oliver Sacks Foundation, a nonprofit organization he established to continue publishing his work, preserve his archives, and support use of the case history to advance humanism in medicine. The cover of his most recent book is adorned by a photograph of a young Dr Sacks astride a motorcycle and dressed in a black leather outfit. The book, a memoir published shortly before his death, is entitled On the Move: A Life.13
