Summary:
"The author's experience with grief after the sudden death of her husband, combined with social science on resilience"-- Provided by publisher.
After the sudden death of her husband, Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. Grant, a friend, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. Here they combine personal insights with research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Resilience comes from deep within us and from support outside us. Even after the most devastating events, it is possible to grow by finding deeper meaning and gaining greater appreciation in our lives.
