Resilience is the buzzword of the moment. We're told that if we have it, our lives will be happy and successful ones. If we don't, we need to acquire it.
But what if the version of resilience we've been peddled is a myth?
Here, Sunday Times bestselling author Bruce Daisley demolishes a concept that has spawned a multi-million pound resilience industry of books, workshops and courses, exposing the highly questionable science it rests on. In its place he outlines a very different approach to good mental health that embraces the latest science and research. Offering empirically tested advice, Fortitude sets out a practical path to greater self-confidence and courage for us all.
