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.

highly recommended

Honestly, I haven’t experience this degree of pain or loss, but I can feel Sheryl’s intensified pain page after page. This piece has highlighted the significance of having an Option B to make recuperating possible.

WORTH IT

Not sure if the original book by Sheryl Sandberg will be a worth a present for a friend who just loss her fave granny, so I thought I’ll listen to the summary version first. I didn’t expect that I’ll love this book from beginning to end. It’s a life-changing book. It inspires and drives a person to continue living in spite of any tragedy they faced. The tips are practical and reasonable enough.

I felt a strong attachment to this.

I like Gail Chaffee. Her voice was soothing but not boring. The book discusses the natural effects of grief and how to go about it the right way. I agree with the notion that avoiding the conflict won’t solve anything. It’ll only make matters worse. Listen to a woman who has experience it all and yet she’s still standing strong now.

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.

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
