about

In this enthralling work of popular science, respected Harvard psychiatrist Jordan Smoller addresses one of humankind’s most enduring and perplexing questions: What does it mean to be “normal?” In The Other Side of Normal, Smoller explores the biological component of normalcy, revealing the hidden side of our everyday behaviors—why we love what we love and fear what we fear. Other bestselling works of neurobiology and the mind have focused on mental illness and abnormal behaviors—like the Oliver Sacks classic, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat—but The Other Side of Normal is an eye-opening, thought-provoking, utterly fascinating and totally accessible exploration of the universals of human experience. It will change forever our understanding of who we are and what makes us that way.
Jordan Smoller is associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and associate professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic, Comprehensive and Easy to Read! What a fantastic novel to read, whether you are studying Psychological Sciences or simply interested in the relationship between the brain and mental illnesses. It is written in such a way that is easy to understand but still very engaging. The author has great use of case studies and it acts as a phenomenal summary and exploration to accompany any Personality Psych course you may be taking. Very impressed with this piece!
