“Stories of human behavior at its most extreme....With humor, compassion, empathy, and insight, Small searches for and finds the humanity that lies hidden under even the most bizarre symptoms.”
—Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

In the vein of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Awakenings, and the other bestselling works of Oliver Sacks, The Other Side of the Couch surprises, enthralls, and illuminates as it focuses on medical mysteries that would stump and amaze the brilliant brains on House, M.D.

From the Back Cover:

A spellbinding record of a doctor’s most bewildering cases—from naked headstands and hysterical blindness to fainting schoolgirls and self-amputations—The Other Side of the Couch is an illuminating journey into the mind of a renowned psychiatrist. Here is a unique behind-the-scenes look at psychiatry and a fascinating exploration into the puzzling eccentricities that make us human.
