The authors reveal the 30 keys to emotional resiliency and the corresponding strategies they themselves have used to transcend their own heart-wrenching personal losses. Some people seem emotionally thicker skinned, undeterred, and perhaps even empowered by setbacks. People with this kind of super-resiliency don't have better luck or better karma. They lose jobs, relationships, health, and money just like the rest of us. But they think differently: they understand what kinds of responses and behaviour contribute to spiritual fragility and which ones breed strength; they make life-affirming choices instead of defeatist ones; they look for and find purpose where most of us see meaningless loss. Fortunately, their valuable and powerful kind of thinking can be learned.
