Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Resilient written and read by Rick Hanson.

Experience lasting happiness, love and peace.

The author of the New York Times best-selling Hardwiring Happiness, Rick Hanson is known for his trademark blend of neuroscience, positive psychology and contemplative practices. In Resilient, he explains how to build the very foundations of well-being by harnessing the power of positive experiences to build an unshakeable core.

Dr. Hanson has distilled 40 years of clinical work and teaching into 12 highly effective tools. Working with these tools allows you to enter a positive cycle which creates a sense of well-being, which in turn establishes resilience, which feeds upon itself to strengthen you. 

Developed from his incredibly popular online course called The Foundations of Well-Being, here is the groundwork you need to be able to meet life with a whole heart.

Life changing insights

Never read a self-development book which offers such a balanced take on life. Other books I read either try to pump you up to do more of A, or less of B. That never works for me in the long term. Information is well structured in a way that is easy to understand and then recall at a later point. No overkill of 15-points lists. The author’s voice is soft and calming, very helpful to take in all the insights. Altogether, a very kind, thoughtful and humane prescription of how you can make sense of what’s going on in your life and how to arrange the pieces of the puzzle in a way that makes you happier and healthier. Chapeau to Rick Hanson!

Very interesting and informative.

I learned a great deal from.this book. The experiential learning was simply great. I enjoyed the fact that it did not use esoteric jargon

Check out the “Being Well” podcast!

Forrest and Rick have a beautiful rapport. This book distills some of their clearest and most heartfelt wisdom. Also their podcast offers so much value—I had to buy the book. It’s wonderfully soothing listening to Rick’s voice right before bed. Wholesome listening.

Refreshing and practical

Definitely warrants a second and third listening. Having said that, I found it easy to listen to with straight forward language, and without a rehashing of what might be considered obvious in the field of resilience. A refreshing book.

Stunning and insightful

As a person who could have been considered a resilient person already, I truly believe this book to be enriching and life changing. A must read for anyone who seeks to build tools in order to make everyday challenges less significant.

Not impressed

limited views on resilient. For me not that insightful. Resilient is a combination of the individual and supporting network.

Disappointed 😥

Expected more. Very boring and hard to concentrate on. Possibly better to read in book form

Ok but nothing life changing

This is a nice enough book and I might listen to it again. However I didn’t take away that much of practical use beyond ‘savouring’ positive experiences. The majority of the book is based on a mindfulness approach which isn’t exactly new.

Great book but formatting a little off

Found this book really useful and think self management is a useful part of it. The practice sections were useful though they are hard to find again and re-reading sections is hampered y calling all chapters in the audio book Chapter 1, 2. 3, etc. could they be re-named? Just a quibble though as the whole book was really helpful.

Meditative

Narration and content was of a medtitatove tone. Hard to listen to in the car due to lack of engagement. Better to listen to later at night.

Worst Narrated audiobook ever

Possibly a good book, feels very generic. But the reading makes it unlistenable. It is like listening to a mediation tape for 8 hours.

not bad, but not great.

I just really struggle to get through this book for some reason. obviously not very constructive feedback, as I don't know why, but I just didn't find it engaging.

Relatable!

I really related to this book whilst suffering from post traumatic stress. Its great to listen to whilst dealing with lingering emotions and gives a new perspective.
