A guide to keeping the psyche intact when you're being spun on life's roulette wheel. Is there an art to survival? Seeking answers to this intriguing question from a pantheon of master survivors, noted thinkers, and spiritual teachers, acclaimed memoirist Mark Matousek combines decades of personal experience with recent scientific breakthroughs - and heroic testimonies - to create a guidebook for navigating life's tricky terrain. How do we live with uncertainty - blossom through adversity while others fall apart, prevail in times of change and challenge? Transformation is in our wiring, the author concludes by the end of this deeply personal quest.
I listened to this many times while recovering from a tragic loss. It was a tremendous help to me, helping me both knowing that I wasn't singled out by the horrible occurrence, and that I could turn my pain into something very worthwhile. I will be taking a writing course from Mr. Matousek as a result.
