Editorial Reviews


Publisher's Weekly says of Endure: "Maurer has a gift for shaping the stories, which are presented in first person...His pastoral insight is the book's strength and will enhance its appeal to readers looking for stories of people who have come through the pain of substance abuse and mental illness to find health and peace."

Midwest Book Review says, "Endure draws important connections between spirituality and handling trauma, gathering real-world stories of resilience told by those who turned to their belief systems for support in times of crisis.

The focus narrows these topics even further to discuss how belief systems affect the recovery process, explaining how faith lends not only support but an ability to process and respond to disaster and come to terms with life in the face of inconceivable circumstances.

Author Daniel Maurer features his own story as he shares how faith and self-inspection contributed to his recovery process and a journey that led him to interview individuals around the world from diverse belief systems, documenting the moments when all hope was lost and the circumstances surrounding when hope was regained.

The term 'assets' is typically used in a business sense; but here it becomes a powerful psychological tool to encourage positive change. How can positive change be achieved from death, disaster, and lifechallenges? In documenting exactly how others have gathered and employed their spiritual assets, Daniel D. Maurer succeeds in presenting a satisfying blend ofmemoir and an inspirational spiritual guide that shows how to flourish fromvirtually anything.

Endure is highly recommended for spiritual self-help readers interested in both self-inspectionand applied religious processes."

Michael H Ballard, the Founder of Resiliency for Life says, "Such meaningful and useful content on being resilient. When you add in the power of individual stories for perspective and the courage of the author to share his missteps and mistakes, trials and tribulations and lessons learned, it makes this book well worth reading. I find it inspiring and highly recommend it for anyone feeling stuck and trying to move forward, or for anyone who wants to support a loved one, a team member or coworker who is being challenged by life's BIG Stuff and so often threatening events." 

Dr. Ann Masten, the Regents Professor of Child Development, University of Minnesota, and author of Ordinary Magic: Resilience in Development says: "This book's stories illuminate the complexity of human lives, both in regard to the vicissitudes of life and the diverse and sometimes surprising paths to well-being. This book offers rich insights for those facing similar challenges and those who care about them, as well as professionals and scientists seeking to understand and promote resilience." 

Audrey Mabrey, an internationally acclaimed domestic violence advocate, speaker, survivor and President of Break the Silence against Domestic Violence, states: "Maurer's vision and expression of the power of spiritual assets was eloquently captivating and highlighted so beautifully how we can all tap into this natural resource as a means to accomplishing true resiliency." 

From the Author

Writing this book was hard work; it was probably the most difficult and long-suffering task I have ever undertaken. When I began molding the form of it nearly three-and-a-half years ago, even the title and the topic were different. Originally, I wanted to write a work outlining each of the Twelve Steps through other people's stories. Every chapter would highlight another Step in the recovery process. Its title would have been Your Story is Not Yet Finished. Through every person's story and each new Step, I would discover for myself (and pass along to the reader) the process of personal transformation, specifically how it related to recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol.

However, I began to recognize that I wasn't interested only in the process of personal change from the viewpoint of addiction-recovery. Simultaneously, my online blog Transformation is Real began to shift its focus as well, highlighting and categorizing personal transformation from the rich mosaic of changes that people make in their lives. Despite the differences between each person's story, one common thread revealed itself. From stories of survival after a sexual assault, to the tales behind a tattoo someone chose to mark a personal change, to addiction-recovery fiction and micro-poetry, even stories sharing how service to others leads to meaning and purpose--the one, shared trait to rise from the ashes of stress or trauma to make lasting change was resilience. So, this book Endure was born!
