The book is very long. It contains considerably more information than the hour long interview I heard, which is good. I dislike when an interesting speaker has nothing further to say in a book they are promoting than the promotional material itself.
My problem, the reason I rated the book only 3.5 out of 5 is compared to the very dynamic manner in which the author speaks, the writing is very dry. I read a lot and I read widely, and I don't think of my self as particularly finicky but this book is hard going for me. I take it along where ever I go and attempt to delve further. Sometimes I jump ahead, hoping for a more engaging part. . .you might wonder why I still persevere, when it's clearly such a chore.
I keep going because the material is important. The material teaches one resilience, and how to rewire one's own brain. The results are wonderful. I very much appreciate my newly minted resilience. I recommend doing the work. You won't be sorry.

My only problem is with the title. I think it will throw many readers off, especially those who already feel resilient. Graham is talking about a much deeper set of issues than simply bouncing back. It should have been titled something like "Interconnected: Buddhism, Psychology, and You (in plain English)".
Brava Linda Graham! You've outlined and combined so many great teachings and gems from research in an accessible way.
As a career and life transitions coach, I've been successfully using some of this book's dozens of helpful exercises with my clients to help them build confidence in making major changes in their lives-- a process that usually involves a lot of reaching out, falling down, and having to get back up again. These exercises are easy to use and really work. They can be used on their own or enhanced by the author's excellent text on why they work-- from psychological, neuroscience, and mindfulness research and experiential evidence. Bouncing Back has taken its place as a major tool on my professional bookshelf! I highly recommend it for coaches, therapists, and anyone who wishes to be able to rise to life's challenges and handle life's inevitable risks with more grace, grounding, and centering.
