I love self-help books and while some can be the same old tired advice recycled I found this one very useful and written in a lively, chatty style. It felt as though I had a good friend sitting next to me looking at my life and my problems and telling me how to bounce back on a day to day basis as well as in the face of major problems. Resilience is what makes a person able to deal with problems and stress and come out smiling. Optimism and looking on the bright side of life are a huge part of it I love self-help books and while some can be the same old tired advice recycled I found this one very useful and written in a lively, chatty style.
Optimism and looking on the bright side of life are a huge part of it. Looking at problems from a different perspective may help you deal with them in more creative ways. The book is full of inspiring examples of people — famous and not so famous — who have bounced back from terrible tragedies and made something of their lives. There are also lots of inspiring quotations from many different sources.

This book is a self help book and part motivation piece of writing about having the resilience to keep going when there are problems in your life.
Winston Churchill summed it up well when he said when you are going through hell, keep going. Some people assume that when they have a serious problem it's an end in itself and they will never surmount it. One thing mentioned in the The book I read to research this post was Resilience by Liggy Webb which is a very good book which I bought from kindle.
One thing mentioned in the book is you should bend not break and try and see it as a chance to build character and look at is there a hidden opportunity. One thing some people find when there is a major setback, once they resolve it they want to work with others in a similiar situation. I quite enjoyed reading this book and apparently the author runs things like a creative writing group and tries to help disadvantaged people.
I think a lot of the things she has discovered in that role has helped her in writing this book. I was lucky enough to get this book on special offer on kindle yesterday so the price may have gone back up. Nov 11, Chris Miller rated it it was ok Shelves: self-improvement. Short read. There were a few good points in this book. The main thing I took away was the importance of having a positive outlook and being optimistic as a part of a resilient attitude.
This is a quick read, but not as helpful as I would have liked. I liked Willpower by Baumeister and Mindset by Dweck better than this book.
