Recommended to my by my therapist, this book was spot on in helping me reconnect with my resilient spirit. My book is now dog-eared and highlighted, with notes on nearly every page, it was that good.

Recommends it for: everyone
in trying to deal with my grief after my brother's death, I wanted to find a way to not become bitter and angry because of it. It seems to me that traumatic events can be opportunities for us to grow in strength and kindness. This book is a wonderful gem, and I learned so much from it.

Never cloying, but at times overly simplistic, this book has comforted me as I reflect on the sometimes painful and difficult relationship I have had with my father, who is now in hospice.

I read this a long time ago and read again because someone purchased it from me.

It should be a must read in high school psychology coursework.
