If you banish the dragons, you banish the heroes.

Andrew Solomon, writer of The Noonday Demon: The Atlas of Depression


Doctor, author, and podcaster Gail Saltz, M.D. has spent her career working to understand the neurodivergent brain. She believes that neurological differences can bring as many benefits as problems.

Both as a society and as individuals, we should learn to dismantle the stigma around developmental differences and mental health, for the benefit of all.

Saltz enlists neuroscience, observed experience, and history in The Power of Different: The Link Between Disorder and Genius.

While not all those with a diagnosed condition will turn out to be high achievers, many come with advantages that, once identified, can be celebrated.

Blending examples from great minds with her own experiences, Saltz makes a persuasive case for accentuating the positive.
