"Framed brilliantly, this book is the mother lode of scientific knowledge on a profoundly important topic. The editors recognize that understanding why some individuals prevail in the face of adversity - and even flourish - must encompass numerous influences, from personal qualities to social networks and communities. Importantly, the final section presents resilience-promoting interventions designed to build the strengths required to surmount major life difficulties. It will be the definitive source on adult resilience for years to come." - Carol D. Ryff, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA "Scholars and students alike will find the Handbook of Adult Resilience to be invaluable. Simply stated, this is the most important book to date on the topic of resilience." - John T. Cacioppo, University of Chicago, Illinois, USA "Resilience is a psychological concept that has excited many investigators and practitioners, but it has been difficult to define clearly or measure reliably. This Handbook gathers together the clearest thinkers in the field to tackle this idea from biological, emotional, cognitive, developmental, social, and even policy perspectives. There is no other book available with this kind of reach, and it should be on the shelf of anyone contemplating research on resilience or for whom the idea of resilience helps to organize clinical and community-based interventions. This volume includes a fabulous group of contributors writing at the cutting edge of the field." - Peter Salovey, Yale University, Connecticut, USA "I have used the Handbook of Adult Resilience as the main text in my course on Psychological Resilience at Harvard for two years. Both graduate- and undergraduate-level students have found the text to be clear, informative, up-to-date, and interesting. I thank the editors for bringing together the best researchers in the field to provide a comprehensive overview of resilience in a single volume." - Shelley Carson, Harvard University, Massachusetts, USA "This text offers a comprehensive, balanced examination of resilience at multiple levels of psychological analysis. Students appreciate the direct, approachable writing and the comprehensive, current understanding of the topic. I rely heavily on this text in my teaching." - Jackson Rainer, Georgia Southern University, USA
