A “must read” book!
From time immemorial, we have averted our eyes rather face the cold hard facts of the impact of war on the human psyche. With the wide-ranging eye and objectivity of a brilliant anthropologist, Grinker has written a “must read” book for those seeking to understand, prevent and treat the wounds of war to the heart, mind and soul.
An informative and thoughtful book
Nobody’s Normal is an unusually engaging history of mental illness and the stigma attached to it. Dr. Grinker threads together the attitudes of society toward psychiatric illness with the lives and work of his ancestors, and his daughter’s experience of autism. The result is an informative and thoughtful book about mental illness: common, painful, usually treatable, and profoundly tied to the human condition.
