Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Child & developmental psychology, Popular science, Self-help & personal development, Popular psychology

A practical and inspiring popular psychology book that encourages embracing traits that would normally be seen as 'problems' and using them to thrive in life.

THE POWER OF DIFFERENT is an illuminating and uplifting examination of the link between brain differences and aptitude. Psychologist and bestselling author Gail Saltz presents the latest scientific research and profiles famous geniuses and lay individuals who have been diagnosed with all manner of brain 'problems' - including learning disabilities, ADD, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and autism. Saltz shows that the source of our struggles can be the origin of our greatest strengths. Rooted in her experience as a professor and practicing psychiatrist, and based on the latest neurological research, Saltz demonstrates how specific deficits in certain areas of the brain are directly associated with the potential for great talent. She also shows how the very conditions that can cause difficulty at school, in social situations, at home or at work, are bound to creative, disciplinary, artistic, empathetic and cognitive abilities.

In this pioneering work, readers will find engaging scientific research and stories from historical geniuses and everyday individuals who have not only made the most of their conditions, but who have flourished because of them. Enlightening and inspiring, THE POWER OF DIFFERENT shows how the unique wiring of every brain can be a source of strength and productivity, and can contribute to the richness of our world.
