Description

This book provides role models of resilience through profiles of thirty-five individuals, representing seven areas of endeavor. If we put our daily challenges and problems into perspective alongside those faced by these thirty-five individuals, our concerns pale in comparison. We can then turn our challenges and problems into opportunities and our lives will be richer for it.
