Working as the staff psychiatrist for 20 years alongside the first person to statistically define “normal minds” at the Glen Roberts Child Study Center in Glendale, California, author James Benvenuti, M.D., has admixed these determinants with later discoveries from Harvard teams which then developed the SCORS system for describing “normal.” Benvenuti covers this and more in his new book, “NORMAL MINDS” (published by Lulu).

Presenting an “8-gated filter” to help readers manage their words and actions more effectively, “NORMAL MINDS” explores Glen Roberts’ concept and shares scientific findings on “normal” while integrating brief biographies of many of history’s greatest leaders who showed these various traits.

An excerpt from “NORMAL MINDS”:
We all know what 'crazy' looks like ... BUT WHAT DOES NORMAL REALLY LOOK LIKE?

Describing normal people as aware, positive, intimate, moral, responsible, self-controlled, self-confident and integrated, Benvenuti suggests “All of us strive to be NORMAL PEOPLE -this book helps us FOCUS ON WHAT'S NEEDED.”
