Puzzled or put off by our own or someone else's behavior, we frequently ask ourselves, Is that normal? Yet the question cuts both ways. Either we fail to meet some arbitrarily high standard, or we despair because we are merely normal. This book offers a clear explanation and some useful answers to the question of normalcy, helping readers identify, understand, and value the wide range of differences in the way normal people perceive and respond to the same situation. Drawing on a large body of solid research, psychologists Pearman and Albritton show how our own natural tendencies produce interpersonal blind spots that lead to misunderstandings. They offer practical tips for recognizing the ways other people perceive and respond to situations differently, and for communicating more effectively with others.

First off holy amount of info. It's like reading a... well a novel about knowing different types of personality types. =] There are no pictures, diagrams, or anything interesting. Or that could possibly help a visual learner. Ok so small lie. There are a few charts of information but they don't really make sense this book is more for a physiologic major. If normal people were meant to read this it would be simplified times appropriately a billion times. The second edition of I'm not crazy, I'm just not you is a rude wake up call for a lot of people. The truth of it all is stunning and a breath of fresh air.
