′A chatty, self–help book If you want an introduction to the subject that you can read in a day, you could do worse (Management Today, April 2013)
From the Back Cover
Bounce back from whatever life throws at you
Stressful situations are a fact of life. Knockbacks, setbacks, job insecurities, money worries and relationship issues are all too familiar. Some people can approach them with confidence and poise, facing change and challenges head on. Others become quivering wrecks at the mere thought of them.
So how can you learn to handle the ups and downs better? Being resilient is all about cultivating the right attitude and inner strength to cope when life s challenges seem almost overwhelming. It s not about that is happening to you it s about how you react that really counts.
Resilience will help you:
- Become more confident about your own ability to respond and deal with knockbacks
- Stay optimistic without being naïve and ignoring the problem
- Feed your emotions intelligently so that you can take more self–control
- Seek out the opportunity in any problematic situation
- Make time to invest in your wellbeing to boost your overall health and resilience
Whatever negative things life throws at you, this is your chance to make the best and most of it and bounce back even stronger than before.See all Product description

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. If you always imagine the worst in any situation you aren't helping yourself to deal with things in a practical way and you may focus on what could happen rather than on what you can change for the better.
The author talks about seeing problems as opportunities - referred to as `probortunities'. 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.
The book starts with a questionnaire which the reader can answer to assess how resilient they already are and then goes on to look at the various aspects of resilience and ways of increasing resilience. There is the text of `Desiderata' at the end together with forty things you can do to help yourself feel better, top 20 survival songs, and a section on useful resources which includes books and websites. My copy of the book is bristling with post it notes and scribbled pencil notes in the margin and I know I will be referring to it again and again.
