How to Deal with Adversity, Paperback Book

How to Deal with Adversity Paperback

Part of the The School of Life series



No matter how insulated we are by wealth or friends we can all expect to undergo some form of loss, failure or disappointment.

The common reaction is to bear it as best we can - some do this better than others - and move on with life.

Christopher Hamilton proposes a different response to adversity.

Focusing on the arenas of family, love, illness and death, he explores constructive ways to deal with adversity and embrace it to derive unique insight into our condition.

Offering examples from history, literature and science, he suggests how we might recognize it as a precious source of enlightenment, shaping our very existence.
