The Island of the Colour-blind and Cycad Island
3 journalers for this copy...
This book is about his main love, neurology, and the strange neurological diseases of two islands in the Pacific: one where an abnormally large percentage of the population is colour-blind; the other where an unexplained parkinsons-like disease has struck down almost an entire generation. But it's also about life on the islands, the amazing botany of isolated places, and a fair chunk of autobiography. And just musings on life in general. All of which adds up to a very interesting book.

Coincidentaly, we had a colour blindness with Newk around the time I picked this up.
