'[The authors] have written a crisp, user-friendly guide to the latest scientific research on resilience. With a light touch, they illuminate what seems to be every major study in the field over the last 20 years. In reading this short book, one can come away with much like a PhD or MD in the new science of resilience … splendid.' The Washington Independent Review of Books (washingtonindependentreviewofbooks.com)

Those seeking inspiration and hope that adversity can be survived will be reassured; readers who want an overview of contemporary research on resiliency will be nourished by the thorough reviews; and those seeking self-improvement advice will find many promising practices.' PsycCRITIQUES

If you are interested in the science of growth, mastery, and personal power, this book is a must read.

It covers in detail all the recent findings in psychology and neuroscience on the topic of personal development under one cover. Some of the hot topics addressed include: mindfulness training, the relationship between physical activity and mental function, neuroplasticity, neurobiology of stress, anxiety and arousal. The authors do a beautiful job of putting all these diverse ideas into an easy to read narrative.

What is also amazing is that all the key points on each topic are addressed fully in such a short book. Most of the material in "Resilience" has already been written about in other books but it would take at least 10 of them to get to the same level of understanding on all the relevant topics.

The book has been a pleasure to read because the authors have found a perfect balance between a dry academic text and meaningless motivational waffle. The science is real and backed up by references. The personal accounts are well picked and demonstrate the key arguments in real life. However, this is not an instruction manual - there is no bullet list of "10 funky steps to become super resilient" anywhere in the book. If you want to apply any of the principles to your own life you will have to work that out for yourself. Some advice is given in the last chapter but it is very open ended.

If you need to read up on the science of personal strength, either for yourself or for professional research, this book is a great starting point. Throughout the text you will find references to other books, research papers, and websites where you can find more information on a given topic.

Personally I found it extremely good. However might be a hard read for someone of a nervous disposition as there are a lot of examples of bad things that have happened to people in this book.
