This is a great introduction to the complex world of neurodiversity.

The moments for reflection are going to be crucial for many individuals to think about changing their lives and those of others.‘, Charli Clement

‘In our society, many stigmas and stereotypes still exist around neurodivergent people. This is due to a lack of awareness, understanding and societal expectations. With his fantastic and much needed work, Daniel creates not only awareness about the often unspoken, but he also challenges us in our thinking and encourages us to focus on the strengths and abilities of people that are neurodiverse. Featuring successful people that are neurodivergent gives hope and confidence to those that have never seen themselves in such positions and to the families that often feel they do not fit in the society. This book should be a must read for everyone – from teachers, families, leaders to any neurodivergent people that struggle with understanding why they seem to be different. The book gives a great understanding of different types and helpful guidance. At the end, we are all different and a more neurodivergent environment also helps to create an environment in which we all can thrive.‘, Felizitas Lichtenberg, Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion at SumUp
