The Bounce Back Book: How to Thrive in the Face of Adversity, Setbacks, and Losses is the newset book of speaker and author Karen Salmansohn. What I like about this book is that Karen encourages people to actually face and deal with their feelings in tough times, rather than mask them with substances or other distractions. I wrote to Karen: Remember that old aspirin commercial where they sang "I haven't got time for the paaain, no I haven't got time for the paaain?" That song pretty much sums up our society's views on dealing with physical or emotional struggles. Just numb it out and everything will be cool!
Karen offers a generous and varied menu of ideas on the topic of dealing with adversity - 75 of them, actually! Plus the book has a red cover made of -- yes! -- bouncy, rubbery material. Clever woman, that Karen.
