I really enjoyed this book, as myself being a trainer, coach and consultant of all things related to mental toughness a micro personality trait being researched and discovered to be present in all things successful, it was good to see an in depth look at resilience rather than the usual top 10 things you should know. I particularly liked the detailed and deep look at the belief system using the ABC approach.
It links in nicely with the positive psychological school of thought that is moving the study of this area forward rather than the constantly looking back over the shoulder of previous schools to find out what is wrong rather than what is right.
I recommend if you wish to understand resilience and hardiness further then read this one.

This book contains lots of very useful techniques that you can use to make yourself more resilient.
It can occasionally get a little repetitive but in general is quite well written.
It provides a useful framework that you can use when dealing with many different situations that you normally find how to deal with.
