Book Review: Better Than Normal: How What Makes You Different Can Make You Exceptional by Dr. Dale Archer
“Although Dr. Dale Archer is a board certified psychiatrist who has been an expert in his field for over two decades, his new book Better Than Normal: How What Makes You Different Can Make You Exceptional, proves that he has maintained an ability to provide unencumbered, jargon saturated advice.
