Reviews - What do customers think about The Power of Resilience: Achieving Balance, Confidence and Personal Strength in Your Life?
Just reading Brooks and Goldstein helps me feel more positive. Jun 10, 2008
I bought "Raising Resilient Children" first, on my journey to being a better parent. Of course, I wanted to be a better role model of resiliency. I was overjoyed to see that Brooks and Goldstein had written a book for just such an audience!
This book is filled with real suggestions, illustrative examples, and worksheets to aid you in your work towards resiliency. As in "Raising Resilient Children", I feel like Brooks and Goldstein truly empathize with how much work there is in increasing resiliency and give the reader skills that truly help.
The very tone of the book itself helps me feel like there's someone out there who empathizes and wants to work with me to improve my character. These two really walk the talk of empathy and emotional support. Highly recommended.
Really Good Jan 30, 2008
This book actually has several lists and practical ideas that you can use to fight defeated attitudes and regain focus in your life. Some ideas I really liked were:
- taking time to celebrate your successes...
- taking small steps towards your ultimate goal (and preparing for what to do if you hits snags).
-making the decision to look at failures/mistakes as an opportunity to learn instead of a confirmation that you're a loser.
The book on tape is really the way to go, but if you love to read I guess the paper version would work just fine. I'm sure there are lots of complex, overly complicated works on this subject out there, but this isn't one of them!

Undoubtedly the best book on this subject Jun 5, 2004
Written by two emminently qualified authors, this book rises above the "fluff" that is often seen in other books on this subject. This book will inspire you and show you how to conquer adversity. It's a great resource.
