I thought this book was wonderful. There are many stories of triumph over adversity in this book, and research to back it all up. Too often, we forget to realize the potential to grow in the face of tragedy. In fact, without struggle, how much would we grow at all...? Overall, good work.

Clear, helpful and hopeful. Post-traumatic growth can be possible through acceptance, cogitive reframing, and community. PTSD need not be a terminal process, nor is recovery necessarily steeped in pharmaceuticals.

As a behavioral health professional, I found this book to be very good. Many people, especially those who have overcome great tragedy, bounce back and make much more of their time on earth than those who dodge these same events. Resilience is the key, and this book is about resilience. Very timely and well written book.
