A First Rate Madness (Book)

Nassir Ghaemi, an academic psychiatrist and Professor of Psychiatry at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, explores some of the iconic leaders who thrived in times of crisis and how their abnormal mental health promoted qualities that mark those with mood disorders—realism, empathy, resilience, and creativity. Our goal is to learn why these qualities matter and how to harness them.
