This book is about how to handle being jounced. For the author, what began six years ago as an angry response to a personal catastrophe has evolved into an appreciation for the journey he has indeed been on all his life, and a heightened awareness of how to continue that life with intention.
As we work to craft a fulfilled life and a lasting legacy, it is daunting to deal with the growing concern about where our world and our place in it are headed, when only some factors are within our control. For most of us, it remains far easier to comfortably continue meandering through our daily existence, making ends meet, absorbed in social media, focused on the present, blissfully unaware of the storm clouds on our horizons.
Beginning with the death in childhood of a school chum, Brosseau delves into the concepts of chaos and its effects on our well-being; how biology forms human nature and response to danger; the process by which we can begin to take control of chaos; and the need to be present in and committed to relationships, and to recognize and hone the skills that will empower us to create resilience.
Jounce describes one person's strategy for building a more resilient life. It is an exploration of the challenges we face and some of the characteristics of human nature that drive how we cope with our world. While a journey such as this is critical to help you - the reader and fellow traveller - manage crisis and jounce, you'll find that it's not all hard work, and you'll achieve a more fulfilled life in the process.

About the Author
His work has varied from involvement in a monumental air traffic control system to many simpler projects with small teams. He has worked with and taught topics from high technology to personal relationships, engaging with high school students and CEOs alike, and has learned from everyone he's come in contact with along the way. For the most part, he's never stayed with any one organization for more than a few years; the call to do something different has always been too strong.
He is now acting on one of the most important changes in his personal life: answering the call to raise awareness about resilience, turning up the volume on the discussion about how we can consciously build our resilience, at a time when the need is more acute than ever.
Jim lives with his wife and two children in Vancouver, coaches and trains teams to become more effective at working together, and hopes to be competent in both building and playing stringed instruments some day.
It's all part of his journey.
