TED comes to the MET

"The opposite of depression isn't happiness. It is vitality."  Andrew Solomon  (the dude with the double-breasted suit)

Andrew Solomon is a writer and lecturer on politics, culture, and psychology. His latest book, Far From the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity (2012), won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction and eleven other national awards. Far From the Tree tells the stories of parents who not only learn to deal with their exceptional children, but also find profound meaning in doing so. Solomon's previous book, The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression (2001), won the 2001 National Book Award for Nonfiction and was a finalist for the 2002 Pulitzer Prize.
Solomon is a lecturer in psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College

Here's a full list of the speakers:

What a great all day event at the MET. This TED event was everything I thought it would be. Now I know why they are so popular. All I can tell you is that you have to go to one to see for yourself.
