Reviews of: The Bounce Back Book: How to Thrive in the Face of Adversity,...
"The Bounce Back Book" by Karen Salmansohn is a great book for anyone who is facing any type of unexpected adversity in life, whether it be the loss of a career, divorce or being the victim of a violent crime, sexual assault or an abusive relationship.
The book is a compilation of uplifting quotes, personal stories from the author, statistics and scientific facts on healing human emotions and exercises to help the reader get back on a healthy emotional track.
I've read the book through once, and now I'm going back to complete the healing exercises at my own pace, which include ways to mend self-esteem, create a future in order to move beyond your trauma, cope with "crisis" moments and put into place skills for overcoming future setbacks.
The science is solid, the tips are practical and practicable by anyone and the tone is lighthearted without making light of your problems.
