    The noted research psychiatrist explores how life's disappointments and difficulties provide us with the lessons we need to become better, bigger, and more resilient human beings. Adversity is an irreducible fact of life. Although we can and should learn from all experiences, both positive and negative best-selling author Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal believes that adversity is by far the best teacher most of us will ever encounter.

    I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others. It is clear that some of the other readers did not actually read the entire book but rather only read a few stories at the beginning and then put the book down. Some of the best stories are towards the end. I found the stories inspiring and uplifting. Many small nuggets of very powerful reasoning about life are to be found in this book. However, to see this you must read and think about how it relates to you. I find stories about the Jewish struggle of 1933-1945 to be some of the most inspiring in all of our modern history. Stories of South Africa and the struggle against yet another evil attempt by the brittish empire to steal resources and subjugate humans to a lower status runs a close second. Thank you Dr Rosenthal for sharing stories of your personal life.
