Make your gifted life meaningful.

Overcome your unique challenges. The challenges smart and creative people encounter - from scientific researchers and genius award winners to best-selling novelists, Broadway actors, high-powered attorneys, and academics - often include anxiety, overthinking, mania, sadness, and despair. In Why Smart People Hurt, natural psychology specialist and creativity coach Dr. Eric Maisel draws on his many years of work with the best and the brightest to pinpoint these often devastating challenges and offer solutions based on the groundbreaking principles and practices of natural psychology.

Find meaningful success. Do you understand what meaning is, what it isn’t, and how to create it? Do you know how to organize your day around meaning investments and meaning opportunities? Are you still searching for meaning after all these years? Many smart people struggle with reaching for or maintaining success because, after all of the work they put into attaining it, it still seems meaningless. In Why Smart People Hurt, Dr. Maisel will teach you how to stop searching for meaning and create it for yourself.

Learn from a truly thought-provoking personal growth book. In Why Smart People Hurt, you will find:

  • Evidence that you are not alone in your struggles with living in a world that wasn't built for you or your intelligence
  • Logic- and creativity-based strategies to cope with having a brain that goes into overdrive at the drop of a hat
  • Questions that will help you create your own personal road map to a calm and meaningful life

An overall good book

I find it disappointing that the authors needed to discredit creationism based on humans being imperfec, it simply wasn't necessary and put a damper on the book for me which I mostly enjoyed. the argument wasn't necessary to the overall message in the book.
