      I loved this book Honestly, it was beautifully written The language was relevant to the times Phineas Gage is one of the most well known medical cases in the world And as I read about his life, my heart broke for him I teared up on several occasionsThis is definitely, without a doubt a must read.

      Based on a true story, The Only Living Man presents the account of Phineas Gage and his traumatic brain injury The book also spends a good deal of time recounting the struggles that Dr John Harlow, the doctor who treated Gage after his accident, faced in bringing to the world the things he had learned about the human brain from treating Gage I found both accounts fascinating I found myself empathizing with Gage and the dramatic changes he was forced to live with after the accident, including cha [...]

      Disappointing, and I had been waiting to read this I thought it was a biography, but it s fiction My mistake, of course Not sure how much I can really say I learned since it is a novel Beyond that I really disliked the writing style, particularly the bad dialogue and run on sentences It needed some solid editing, which would have eliminated mistakes like worried about her mother s mental state of mind and On a frigid Monday morning, Phineas, devoid of any warmth generating outer garments If only [...]

      Interesting book, but I was hoping for of Phineas story It just seemed like if there wasn t enough information about a certain time, it jumped back to the doctor s story And some of Phineas jobs just seemed glossed over so we could move on to the next chapter of the doctor wanting to be a politician I would have enjoyed it if the friendship between the two had been expanded upon or there was detail about Phineas history.Also might have enjoyed it if the ebook read like it had been edited The [...]

      My affinity for this book may be completely related to a previous exposure to the underlying story There is nary a psychology or therapy OT, PT, SLP student that has not been introduced to the name, Phineas Gage The only living man with a hole in his head is not only a title, but a perfect summation of the incredible, true story of the marrying of a man s railroad tamping rod and his cranium The importance of this man s injury and his doctor s efforts to legitimize his story cannot be overstated [...]

      I was really looking forward to reading this but was so disappointed with the writing actually not just disappointed but appalled I couldn t finish the first 20 pages it was so poorly written Too bad It is a great topic and Pliss certainly has talent but the run on sentences are out of control The period language was awkward and stiff A good editor would have saved this book.

      A real yawn of a book Thought I d get science, but it was really historical fiction, with terrible dialogue and really flat prose.
