Whether it is the loss of a parent to death or divorce; bullying; alcoholism or drug abuse in the home; mental illness in a parent or a sibling; neglect; emotional, physical or sexual abuse; having a parent in jail; or growing up alongside domestic violence, 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.

Drawing on nearly two decades of work with clients and students, Jay tells the tale of ordinary people made extraordinary by these all-too-common experiences, everyday superheroes who have made a life out of dodging bullets and leaping over obstacles, even as they hide in plain sight as doctors, artists, entrepreneurs, lawyers, parents, activists, teachers, students and readers. She gives a voice to the supernormals among us as they reveal not only "How do they do it?" but also "How does it feel?"

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.

Marvelously researched and compassionately written, this exceptional book narrates the continuing saga that is resilience as it challenges us to consider whether -- and how -- the good wins out in the end.

 

無論是失去父母還是離婚;欺凌;酗酒或家庭吸毒;父母或兄弟姐妹的精神疾病;忽視;情感、身體或性虐待;父母親之一坐牢;或伴隨家庭暴力一起成長,我們所有人之中有近75%的人在20歲之前經歷過逆境。但這些經歷往往是保密的,我們勇敢地戰勝它們也是如此。
 
通過與客戶和學生近二十年的合作,傑伊 (Jay) 講述了一般人通過這些非常普遍的經歷所做出的非凡的故事,也敘述這些日常超級英雄如何通過躲過災難和跨越障礙而生活,即使他們低調隱身當醫生、藝術家、企業家、律師、家長、行動主義者、教師、學生和讀者。她為我們之間的超級凡人發聲,因為他們不僅透露“他們是如何做到的?”還有“感覺如何?”
 
這些強而有力的故事,以及安德烈·阿加西(Andre Agassi)和傑伊·扎(Jay Z)描述的公眾人物,都會表現出超凡,他們並不孤單,但事實上,有需多朋友為伴。
 
這本非凡的書籍經過精心研究和富有同情心的方式寫成,敘述了持續的傳奇故事,它激勵我們思考是否,以及如何最終贏得了勝利。
