The Power of Different: The Link Between Disorder and Genius (#CommissionsEarned)

Many books focus on neurological difference as a detriment. The Power of Different presupposes, instead, that being non-neurotypical can be associated with great talent. These brain differences include “learning disabilities, ADD, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and autism.”
But author Saltz doesn’t just stick to the Edisons and Einsteins; she uses examples of everyday people who have “leaned in” to their brain differences and flourished not in spite of them, but because of them. She also offers advice on how you, too, can harness your special ADHD powers for good and how your unique brain can be a source of strength rather than a focus point of weakness.
