Authors Group featuring Meg Jay, PhD

Clinical psychologist and author of Supernormal, Meg Jay takes us into the world of the supernormal: those who soar to unexpected heights after childhood adversity. Nearly 75% of us experience adversity by the age of 20. But these experiences are often kept secret, as are our courageous battles to overcome them. These powerful stories, and those of public figures from Andre Agassi to Jay Z, will show supernormals they are not alone but are, in fact, in good company.
