Summary, etc.:
We no longer have the tools to handle failure...or even perceived failure. When we fall, we lie on the sidewalk crying. When we spill, we splatter. When we crack, we shatter. What do we desperately need to learn? RESILIENCE. And we need to learn it fast. Because the truth is, you really are awesome.
We are living in an era with the highest-ever rates of longevity, education, and wealth. For most of us famine, plague, and other life-threatening catastrophes are the stuff of history books. But there is one side effect: We no longer have the tools to handle failure-- or even perceived failure. Pasricha shows us that we need to change the way we view failure. Here he shares the secrets to building resilience, which will allow us to navigate change and live an intentional life. -- adapted from jacket
