Personal resilience is not a rare quality limited to confident optimists with few negative attitudes; almost everyone has a degree of mental robustness and buoyancy that can be enhanced with practice. It depends on whether we view challenging experiences as traumatic or as opportunities to develop character and grow our capacity for thriving. But that understanding is not always sufficient for us to remain composed under stress and pressure, find or maintain serenity in the midst of turbulence and recover from setbacks. ... for those who want to be better prepared for adversity, navigate through it successfully and enhance their bounce-back ability. Many simple initiatives are introduced to support immediate progress. The main emphasis is on practical strategies and habits of mind for sustainable progress."-- Provided by publisher.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"Even Under Pressure is a new book written for those who want answers to that question, especially the increasing numbers of us experiencing the pace and weight of externally-imposed change. There are strong themes of stress reduction and prevention, developing mindfulness, emotional agility and attitude management practices, limiting conflict, containing a crisis, and action-planning for progress. The book describes and guides simple self-management practices designed to prepare for difficulties, hardship and stressful times, remain even in outlook and attitude under increasing pressure, navigate successfully through misfortune, recover from setbacks and unwelcome change and use adverse experiences to develop character and increase our capacity for thriving." --Publisher description.
