Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant, authors of Option B, talk with Katie Couric about building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.
After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. Her friend Adam, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are steps people can take to recover and even rebound. Option B combines Sandberg’s emotional insights and Grant’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. The authors share what they’ve learned on helping others in crisis, developing compassion for ourselves, raising strong children, and creating resilient families, communities and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to ordinary struggles, allowing us to build resilience for whatever lies ahead. They discuss the capacity of the human spirit to persevere ... and to rediscover joy.
