You cannot bounce back from hardship. You can only move through it. There is a path through pain to wisdom, through suffering to strength, and through fear to courage if we have the virtue of resilience.

In 2012, Eric Greitens unexpectedly heard from a former SEAL comrade, a brother-in-arms he hadn't seen in a decade. Zach Walker had been one of the toughest of the tough. But ever since he returned home from war to his young family in a small logging town, he d been struggling. Without a sense of purpose, plagued by PTSD, and masking his pain with heavy drinking, he needed help. Zach and Eric started writing and talking nearly every day, as Eric set down his thoughts on what it takes to build resilience in our lives.

Eric's letters drawing on both his own experience and wisdom from ancient and modern thinkers are now gathered and edited into this timeless guidebook. Resilience explains how we can build purpose, confront pain, practice compassion, develop a vocation, find a mentor, create happiness, and much more. Eric s lessons are deep yet practical, and his advice leads to clear solutions.

We all face pain, difficulty, and doubt. But we also have the tools to take control of our lives. Resilience is an inspiring meditation for the warrior in each of us.

From the Inside Flap:

We do not “bounce back” from injury or pain. We have to move through it. Our culture is obsessed with happiness—where to find it, how to achieve it—but happiness should not be a goal but a byproduct of our actions. Resilience is what makes us strong, keeps us going, and improves our character along the way.

Best-selling author, Navy SEAL, and humanitarian Eric Greitens offers a masterpiece of warrior wisdom that will change your life.

In 2012, Eric Greitens unexpectedly heard from a former SEAL comrade, a brother-in-arms he hadn’t seen in a decade. Zach Walker had been one of the toughest of the tough. But ever since he returned home from war to his young family in a small logging town, he’d been struggling. Without a sense of purpose, plagued by PTSD, and masking his pain with heavy drinking, he needed help. Zach and Eric started writing and talking nearly every day, as Eric set down his thoughts on what it takes to build resilience in our lives.

Eric’s letters—drawing on both his own experience and wisdom from ancient and modern thinkers—are now gathered and edited into this timeless guidebook. Resilience explains how we can build purpose, confront pain, practice compassion, develop a vocation, find a mentor, create happiness, and much more. Eric’s lessons are deep yet practical, and his advice leads to clear solutions.

We all face pain, difficulty, and doubt. But we also have the tools to take control of our lives. Resilience is an inspiring meditation for the warrior in each of us.

From the Back Cover:

“I love this book. It is tough, smart, and compassionate. I know no one else who could have written a book like this. Eric Greitens has the real-life experience, the courage, and the heart to give all of us the kind of advice that can be life-changing. I will read, reread, and send it to everyone I know. You should too!” — Martha Raddatz, chief global affairs correspondent, ABC News

“What I have loved and admired most about Eric Greitens is that he sees the potential in all of us and compels us to reach it. In Resilience, Greitens draws upon wisdom that is both ancient and powerfully relevant. Read it to win your own battles, and see why Eric Greitens is one of the great Americans of our time.” — J. J. Abrams, producer/director/writer
