Product description

Review

“Divergent Mind explores powerful and positive ways to understand our fundamental differences. Its focus on women is much needed and timely. The book de-pathologizes those of us who most profoundly and intensely think and feel the world around us. I found it to be eye-opening and healing.” -- Mary Pipher, New York Times bestselling author of Women Rowing North and Reviving Ophelia

"American psychiatry has increasingly taught our society to think that people can be divided into two categories: those who are 'normal' and those who are 'not normal.' In Divergent Mind, Jenara Nerenberg powerfully writes of an urgent need to scrap that way of thinking, and replace it with a societal appreciation for the many gifts that people with divergent minds bring to our world. Hers is a clarion call for change." --
Robert Whitaker, New York Times bestselling author of Anatomy of an Epidemic and Mad in America 

“This book is powerful, much-needed for our times, and Jenara Nerenberg offers a unique blend of personal, scientific, and societal analysis. Divergent Mind is really for all women, giving them the chance to understand each others’ invisible differences and gifts.” --
Elaine Aron, PhD, bestselling author of The Highly Sensitive Person

“What is ‘normal’? Who gets to decide? Jenara Nerenberg’s wide-ranging Divergent Mind asks and answers these and other essential questions, offering a vision for how individuals and society can take better advantage of the many ways in which we are human.” --
Louise Aronson, MD, New York Times bestselling author ofElderhood: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, Reimagining Life

“This wonderfully positive and accessible introduction to the neurodiversity paradigm is packed with life-changing insight for anyone whose way of experiencing the world diverges from the ordinary.” --
Nick Walker, PhD, autistic neurodiversity scholar and aikido teacher

“Empowering…. This important book not only advocates for research and innovation; it demonstrates the power of acceptance, kindness, and the celebration of differences.” --
Booklist

“An extraordinary, jaw-dropping take on a topic with which many women will identify.” --
Library Journal STARRED review

Jenara Nerenberg grew up in San Francisco and lectures widely on the future of psychology, empathy and neurodiversity, sensitivity, neuroscience research, design, leadership, and reframing media narratives and is the founder of The Neurodiversity Project. After leaving her performing arts high school at the age of 16, she graduated from UC Berkeley and the Harvard School of Public Health and was later selected as a “brave new idea” presenter by the Aspen Institute for her work on reframing mental differences. Her favorite activity is the one-on-one interview -- with NYTimes bestselling authors she hosts for live events or with homeless women and men she grew up talking with and serving at the Glide Memorial Health Clinic.

Jenara publishes widely on topics ranging from mental health to suburban life to gender bias and belonging and community. She lived in Asia for six years and began her journalism career there with CNN. Her interviews have appeared in Fast Company, New York Magazine, and Susan Cain’s Quiet Revolution, as well as the Garrison Institute, the UC Berkeley Greater Good Science Center, and KQED.

Jenara is also a frequent event host, workshop facilitator, and speaker for institutions including the Stanford Graduate School of Business, OZY Media, the Tahirih Justice Center, and Park Day School. Learn more at divergentlit.com

1.0 out of 5 stars Cover of this ‘new’ book is bent at the corner, tatty and peeling!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 March 2021
I haven’t read this yet, I’ll re-review when I have, but having pre-ordered this before Christmas as a new release I’m annoyed at the tatty state it’s turned up in. Is this how pre-orders get rewarded? It’s turned at the corners and the cover is peeling
