Publisher's Summary

Disclaimer: This is a summary and not the original book.

Is everything not going as smoothly as you thought? If you’re feeling sad, lost, and depressed, out of the ashes you will rise.

Option B is a book of resilience. Resilience that enables people who went through periods of dark times like sexual assaults, death of loved ones, and the violence of war to rediscover joy. We may not always get our Option A, and this book will teach us how we can make the best of our Option B.

Note: This summary is wholly written and published by readtrepreneur.com. It is not affiliated with the original author in any way.

“We cannot change what we are not aware of, and once we are aware, we cannot help but change." - Sheryl Sandberg 

The best books are almost always born in the darkest times of the writers. Sheryl Sandberg felt voided and thought that joy was impossible for her children and herself after her husband's sudden death. Everything was dark until she met her friend Adam Grant who was a psychologist.

You may have not felt the pain of losing someone you really love yet. However, the lessons of Option B can be applied to our day-to-day struggles and obstacles.

a true inspiration

I was inspired by the true account of Timothy Chambers that Sheryl Sandberg has included in her book. He is said to be one of the most resilient people she knows. It was inspiring. Readtrepreneur publishing captured almost everything. The book didn’t fail me.

I agree with most of the points raised

Yeah, grief must run its course, and that’s very natural. But we must look forward eventually and accept the truth. This book has raised its points and I agree with most of them.

pretty riveting

It’s crafted well and has also reminded us of the golden rule. I felt devastated with what the main character suffered. And felt great admiration as she learned to adapt eventually. As they say, life isn’t fair. We have to have that Option B when the situation ask for it.

Easy to follow

Great, short and to the point. I rarely give five stars, but it’s the best book, you'll spend on a audio (I did Audible, but I’ll also buy the book to get the references easily ).

good informative

One of the better summaries I've listened........ Provided just the right amount of key information from the book. It felt like it was more a comprehensive summary than a light overview. I was quite pleased and will look to this publisher first for future summaries.

fantastic summary

Besides the original, I have listened to all summaries I have found of this book. And this is in my opinion absolutely the best. It follows strictly all the chapters and explained in a very pedagogic and structured manner.

well explained


Some books are summariable and some are not. This one is definitely one of the books need a summary, because, at the first glance, there are a lot of self-explanation stuff which will not be useful for listeners
