So, how did you come to your conclusion that the book and its authors are "good"?

> but my take on "normal" in this context...

What exactly is this context?

You said the following when referring to the word, "NORMAL":

"[Normal] is a "myth" because no-one is "normal" in every way, because everyone has a health condition of some kind."

You managed to steer us in a circle. What are you using as the definition of the word "NORMAL"? Is its use limited to health status?

Your definition of the word "NORMAL" requires that we evaluate the health status of every single one of the 7.888 billion humans walking the surface of the planet.

You might be an example of the problem I see. People reject the concept of "normal" as a defense mechanism used in order to avoid coming to the conclusion that they are indeed abnormal.

"It is normal to be unique."

Wouldn't internalizing this concept be therapeutically potent?
