This extraordinary book taught me more about resilience than anything else I've read. With the ear of a therapist and the voice of a novelist, Meg Jay delves deep into the human condition to illuminate how we find strength after suffering. It's impossible to read Supernormal without seeing yourself in it - and without seeing yourself more clearly too -- ADAM GRANT, New York Times bestselling author of ORIGINALS, and OPTION B with Sheryl Sandberg Adversity is much more common than we think. But so is resilience, as Meg Jay reveals in this remarkable book. With a storyteller's grace and a clinician's insight, Jay explains how everyday superheroes triumph over traumas of every kind - and how you can use their inspiration and lessons to transform your own life -- DANIEL PINK, author of Drive Bracing * * Elle on The Defining Decade * * Required reading * * Slate on The Defining Decade * * Will inspire, motivate, and educate -- RACHEL SIMMONS, author of The Good Girl on The Defining Decade Eye-opening, important, and a pleasure to read -- WENDY MOGEL, author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee and The Blessing of a B Minus on The Defining Decade
