Fortitude : The Myth of Resilience, and the Secrets of Inner Strength: A Sunday Times Bestseller Hardback



The Sunday Times bestseller that reveals the true secrets of inner strength. 'This is a truly refreshing, captivating and important book that shifted my perception on a topic I thought I knew!

A must read.' Steven Bartlett, entrepreneur and host of The Diary of a CEOResilience is the buzzword of the moment.

We're told that if we have it, our lives will be happy and successful ones.

If we don't, we need to acquire it. But what if the version of resilience we've been peddled is a myth?Here, Sunday Times bestselling author Bruce Daisley demolishes a concept that has spawned a multi-million pound resilience industry of books, workshops and courses, exposing the highly questionable science it rests on.

In its place he outlines a very different approach to good mental health that embraces the latest science and research.

Offering empirically tested advice, Fortitude sets out a practical path to greater self-confidence and courage for us all. 'A fascinating and important pushback against the narrow, joy-eroding version of "resilience" that would leave us to sink or swim alone, Fortitude is an indispensable guide to a more energising, human, and effective approach to working and thriving in a post-pandemic world.' Oliver Burkeman, author of Four Thousand Weeks'Surprising and challenging.

Fortitude encouraged me to re-think not only my work but how I live my life.' Sarah Ellis, co-author of The Squiggly Career'Something I never knew I needed to read but I'm so glad I did, its opened up a whole angle of thinking.' Nadiya Hussain'A fascinating analysis of resilience - what it is, what is isn't and why, when we develop it together, it becomes something better and more important, fortitude.

It seems that resilience is a team game.' Alastair Campbell
