Supersurvivors: The Surprising Link Between Suffering and Success 


Many people suffer trauma in their lifetime. While some experience serious psychological consequences, like post-traumatic stress disorder and other afflictions, many are able to move on and overcome trauma's effects. Then there are those rare individuals who, in the aftermath of great tragedy and turmoil, reassess.

These are the supersurvivors.

“This is a blockbuster that every leader, parent, doctor, teacher, student, coach, and caregiver needs to read. I can’t remember the last time I was so fascinated and moved by a book-let alone one grounded in science.” (Adam Grant, Professor at the Wharton School of Business, and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take)

“Supersurvivors dares to ask, ‘How, really, do we heal?’ From real case studies and hard science, the answers it finds shake the foundations of the way we conceive recovery.” (Po Bronson, New York Times bestselling author of NurtureShock)
