"The Army has some of the most combat-seasoned professional forces in our Nation's history. While our Soldiers remain "the Strength of the Nation," the long-term high level of operational demand has placed significant stress on our all-volunteer force. In response, the Army implemented the Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness (CSF2) program to help leaders enhance unit readiness and to support the ability of Soldiers, Families and Department of the Army Civilians to meet the demands of the military life."
Raymond F. Chandler III, Sergeant Major of the Army
General Raymond Odierno, Chief of Staff of the Army
John M. McHugh, Secretary of the Army

Life's Inevitable Obstacles

  Resilience is a crucial ingredient - perhaps the crucial ingredient - to a happy, healthy life. More than anything else, it's what determines how high we rise above what threatens to wear us down, from battling an illness, to bolstering a marriage, to carrying on after a national crisis. Everyone needs resilience, and now two expert psychologists share seven proven techniques for enhancing our capacity to weather even the cruelest setbacks.

The science in The Resilience Factor takes an extraordinary leap from the research introduced in the bestselling Learned Optimism a decade ago. Just as hundreds of thousands of people were transformed by "flexible optimism," readers of this book will flourish, thanks to their enhanced ability to overcome obstacles of any kind. Karen Reivich and Andrew Shatté are seasoned resilience coaches and, through practical methods and vivid anecdotes, they prove that resilience is not just an ability that we're born with and need to survive, but a skill that anyone can learn and improve in order to thrive.
