Resiliency—the ability to adapt to life's changes and crises—is key to a healthy, productive life. Based on his deep knowledge of the new science of resiliency, Dr. Al Siebert explains how and why some people are more resilient than others and how resiliency can be learned at any age. Through anecdotes, exercises, and examples, Dr. Siebert details a unique five-level program for becoming more resilient. You’ll learn how to:

Sustain health, energy, and positive feelings during the worst of times,
Improve your analytical, creative, and practical problem-solving skills,
Strengthen your self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-concept,
Develop the specific attributes and skills found in highly resilient people, and
Sharpen your talent for serendipity—the ability to convert accidents and misfortune into lucky accidents and good fortune.

The Resiliency Advantage will enable you to bounce back quickly from setbacks, gain strength from adversity, and meet life head on.
