Dr.Rick Hanson’s book Resilient is a great book. It is because it is written on concerning the basic human needs of safety, connections, and satisfaction, and on how to achieve and grow resources. This book is nice piece of work and explains lot about how to resource by yourself by using internalized trait and develop inner strength. The book explains how to grow internal resources in a pretty beautiful way to benefit to all ages. I never thought earlier the states I experience on daily basis could make them traits to grow my inner strengths.It’s a beautiful the way he uses the analysis of improving inner strengths by using traits at this moment. Truly is a practical analysis. I am going to use and educate my two children on Dr.Rick Hanson’s concepts of improving inner strengths by way of experiencing, traits, enriching them, absorbing, turbocharging , and installation process. Especially it is a good approach for their daily education and improving traits to make them understand concepts. We all like to be happy, many of us describe happiness in different terms. If I have lots of money, or latest model of a car may be the most to many. But actual happiness is through moment to moment by experiencing, improving states, developing to traits, enriching, absorbing , turbocharging and internalizing them. We always use mind to experience them but we never want to internalize our positive experiences into our brain. Dr.Rick Hanson explains knowing how to turn passing experiences into lasting resources built into brain, which is called neuroplasticity. Thank you for the great book. I would suggests everybody must take advantage of this little treasure and be a happy person in the next moment. Again Thank you Dr. Rick Hanson. Sunil Gamage RPhT
I really appreciate Rick Hanson's writing style - he provides clear education that makes the reader "want" to experiment with the practice exercises. I'm a mental health counsellor and have recommended this book to many clients already.
Dr. Rick Hanson has teamed up brilliantly with his son Forrest in writing Resilient. Rick is my favorite teacher in the field of mindfulness and neuroplasticity and this book is another wonderful offering. The language is highly accessible and the abundant examples illustrating the concepts are concrete and relatable, bringing them to life in a very practical way. After having taken his Foundations of Wellbeing (FWB) course, I recognize the material, but it has been extensively rewritten with new insights to best suit the book format which is more suitable for a visual learner like me than the FWB online course. As with the FWB, there is something useful for everyone, regardless of their needs. The book is organized to make it possible to quickly access the most pertinent information for those particular needs. The material is evidence based and trustworthy for both individual and clinician and I couldn't recommend it enough. I teach a personal development course for multi-barriered individuals. As I was reading this book, I was inspired to improve my course, including finding my own way to weave the foundation concepts throughout. Rick did this so skillfully in Resilient, reinforcing the chance to learn well.
