Freud was addicted to cocaine and nicotine, Jung was psychotic for several years, and Margaret Mead remained closeted throughout her lifetime.

Yet, adversities notwithstanding, they all made monumental contributions that still shape our view on ourselves and the world.

This book includes biographies of fifteen modern explorers of the mind who altered the course of history.

All of them were wounded healers who made great discoveries while struggling with traumatic life crises and emotional problems in their personal lives.

Full of unexpected twists and turns, their life stories alone are worthy of our attention.

In linking their maladies with their creativity, showing the vulnerable and human side of these giants, this book makes the greats approachable and illuminates their scientific findings through narrating their life stories.
