Jessica Kingsley Publishers

This collection of illustrated portraits celebrates the lives of influential neurodivergent figures who have achieved amazing things in recent times.

Showcasing these 30 incredible people, the extraordinary stories in this book show that the things they've achieved, created and inspired they did not despite being different but because they are different. From politicians, activists and journalists to YouTubers, DJs and poets, this book highlights a wide range of exciting career paths for neurodivergent readers.
