I can practically hear Gloria Gaynor singing her disco classic, "I Will Survive," on these pages. "Resilience" is rich with anecdotes, reflections, and useful tips--all grounded in research--to help you bounce back from life's road bumps and even its landmines.

The book answers these questions and much more: How can you calm your body amid adversity? How can you get out of a bad mood? What can you do to find hope even during times of extreme stress? How can you handle the noise in your head that can undermine your well-being? How can you rely on others during hard times? What is laughter yoga?

"Resilience" is a collection of articles from the intellectually vibrant community that makes up the "Positive Psychology News Daily," which is the brainchild of Senia Maymin, a Ph.D. candidate in organizational behavior at Stanford. Maymin, along with her co-editor, Kathryn Britton, and many of the contributors to "Resilience," earned a Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP).

Started by Martin Seligman, Ph.D., at the University of Pennsylvania just over a decade ago, positive psychology is a rigorous, research based area of psychology that, according to the book, is geared to "be just as interested in building the best things in life as in repairing the worst."

So back to Gaynor: "Did I crumble? Did you think I'd lay down and die? Oh no, not I. I will survive." The 16 authors from five continents who wrote "Resilience" offer you shortcuts to make it easier.

I've enjoyed reading it.

The authors have provided a helpful range of advice and perspectives. It's research-based, so comes with credibility - and it's in everyday language. The result is a series of simple steps anyone could take to develop resilience.

I'm particularly keen on the questions and answers at the end of each chapter. It's an innovative and very useful addition to the book. The authors and the readers who have asked the questions get to issues I haven't seen dealt with before. The discussion about handling a multitude of disruptive thoughts provides useful clarity. The discussion about the order of thoughts and emotions is valuable too.
