Usually Ships in 1-5 Days (Not currently in store)
Make stress your ally in the pursuit of happiness and personal fulfillment.
There’s no escaping stress. It appears on our doorstep uninvited in the shattering forms of death, divorce, or job loss. Stress even comes in the pleasant experiences of promotion, marriage, or a long-held wish fulfilled.
So why do some people come out of a crisis feeling better than ever, and others never seem to bounce back?
You will discover:
• How to develop the 14 traits that will make you more resilient
• Why “falling apart” is often the smartest step to take on the road to resilience
• When the five-step plan for creative problem solving can help
• What essential steps you can take to strengthen your body’s resilience
• How to redefine your problem and restructure your pain to create a life you can handle, a life you can learn from and enjoy!
Drawing on more than thirty years of case studies from his own psychiatric practice, Dr. Frederic Flach reveals the remarkable antidote to the destructive qualities of stress—physical, mental, and emotional resilience.

“Frederic Flach, tried to pinpoint the attitudes and attributes that resilient people have in common—the psychological sources of the bounce-back factor... which [he] believes most of us can cultivate.” —Robert Rodale, Prevention Magazine
“Part practical and part inspirational.... Written with clarity...contains short, readable examples for all aspects of life...useful to lay persons in times of crisis.”
—The New England Journal of Medicine
“Why are some of us permanently damaged by personal setbacks or traumatic change while others pull themselves together and plow on, better prepared for future crises? The answer, says Flach in this guide to handling the endemic stresses of modern life, is ‘resilience’....[A] coherent theory, presented here with considerable skill.”
“Frederic Flach’s most important book to date. Here he brings together his preeminent understanding of psychotherapy and psychiatry drawn from thirty years of practice.... The result is a very helpful and insightful book with numerous case examples.... A humane and optimistic treatise recommended to all those who have interest in understanding their personal journey and their destiny.”
