A bad breakup. A serious illness. The loss of a job. Life has a habit of throwing people curveballs. To which Salmansohn says: “When life throws you curveballs, hit them out of the park,” and tells readers just how in The Bounce Back Book – which has a symbolic red rubber cover on the outside, and inside tips on how to thrive in the face of adversity, setbacks, losses, divorce, bankruptcy, assaults, illness, miscarriage, death, layoffs, slander – you name it.

Salmansohn draws from the latest happiness research, resiliency psychology and even Greek philosophy, to create 75 potentially life-changing tips on how to bounce back, each on a spread that’s as punchy in look as it is powerful in message: “Don’t just write a ‘To Do List’, write a ‘To Be’ List,” “Turn Negativity into Nuggetivity” and “Feeling Means Your Healing Means Your Dealing.
