Oliver Sacks is faceblind...so is

Jane Goodall. Can you believe that? This interview is completely enthralling. And Chuck Close, who by the way only paints people's faces, is too. Listen to the interview!

From the New Yorker:

"This week in the magazine, Dr. Oliver Sacks explores prosopagnosia, or face blindness—a neurological condition that he himself has. Here Sacks talks with Blake Eskin about the comic and painful situations that arise when one is unable to recognize faces, how he compensates for face blindness, and what public awareness of the condition could do for those who suffer from it.

Oliver Sack's latest book, "The Mind's Eye," will be published this fall.
