"Inspiring stories that demonstrate...a shining example of resilience for the world." Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks
"A rich, rewarding, multidimensional work. Well-written, well-told, well-paced, and well worth your time, this book will move you to tears - while teaching you how to "fall forwards" - facing adversity with a smile on your face and a glint in your eye, mastering the human -- and very Israeli - ability to overcome the toughest of challenges." Professor Gil Troy
"This is a book that will engage and inspire you, particularly during these times of great challenge and uncertainty." Yael Eckstein, President, International Fellowship of Christians and Jews
"If you want to understand quite how Israelis consistently beat the odds and face down the challenges, while constantly innovating, questioning, and pushing the frontiers of knowledge and achievement, read this book." David Horovitz, Founding Editor, The Times of Israel
"Michael Dickson, an expert in telling Israel's story,and Dr. Naomi L Baum have done a great service in sharing the stories and secrets of Israeli resilience with their readers." Gilad Erdan, Israel's Ambassador to the United States and United Nations
By elegantly weaving together the fascinating accounts of women and men who underwent and overcame unimaginable conflict, in ISResilience, Michael Dickson and Dr. Naomi Baum examine the very heart of the Jewish people's enigmatic survival. Isaac Herzog, Chairman, Jewish Agency for Israel
"These stories of remarkable men and women tell an essential story about Israel: how a people that lives under constant siege, moving from war to terrorist attacks to boycotts to delegitimization, has created one of the world's most successful societies. We owe a great debt to Michael Dickson and Dr. Naomi L. Baum for telling this story and telling it so movingly." Yossi Klein Halevi, senior fellow, Shalom Hartman Institute, author, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor
"ISResilience gives valuable voice to a wide range of diverse voices who share their Israeli experiences of dealing with adversity and overcoming it to build meaningful lives" Einat Wilf, Author
From the Inside Flap
ISResilience is a study of a nation that has had to collectively and individually hang tough like no other country on earth. Imbued in Israel's DNA is the understanding that survival isn't optional - it's a necessity. Any Israeli could have given testimony for this book. Israelis routinely carry on with their day-to-day lives not just when things are calm and peaceful but when rockets are launched at them, during official conflicts and wars and unofficial waves of gruesome terrorism. And they don't just survive- they thrive.
Each chapter of this book profiles a diverse, compelling Israeli personality - some famous, some not, but all exceptional - and traces the characteristic that unites them all. The life lessons extrapolated from these interviewees can teach every one of us to be stronger people. Written bya communications expert and Israel analyst together with a pioneering psychologist in the field of resilience research and treatment, ISResilience brings today's most in-demand skill to life and shows how we all can benefit from the trait embodied by the nation once admired by Princess Diana as "a plucky little country."
