  • Option B : Facing Adversity, Building Resilience and Finding Joy

    Are you going through a difficult time in your life? Have you experienced a loss or a setback that has left you feeling lost and alone? If so, then Option B is the book for you.

    Written by Sheryl Sandberg, CEO of Facebook, and Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, Option B offers concrete steps that anyone can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. Through a powerful combination of personal insights and eye-opening research, Sheryl and Adam show us that resilience is not something we are born with, but rather a muscle that everyone can build.

    Sheryl shares her own journey through the acute grief and isolation she felt after the sudden death of her husband. But Option B goes beyond Sheryl’s loss to explore how a broad range of people have overcome hardships including illness, job loss, sexual assault, natural disasters, and the violence of war. Their stories reveal the capacity of the human spirit to persevere and to rediscover joy.

    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. Option B illuminates how to help others in crisis, develop compassion for ourselves, raise strong children, and create resilient families, communities, and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to everyday struggles, allowing us to brave whatever lies ahead.

    We all live some form of Option B. This book will help us all make the most of it. So if you are looking for a way to find strength in the face of adversity, then Option B is the book for you. Let Sheryl and Adam show you how to make the most of your own Option B and find joy and resilience in the midst of life’s challenges.
