Option B:  Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy

In 2015 Sheryl Sandberg’s husband, Dave Goldberg, died suddenly at the age of forty-eight. She and her children were devastated and Sandberg was certain that her life would never have real joy again. Just weeks later, Sandberg faced her first father-child activity without Dave. She came up with a plan for a friend to fill in.  “But I want Dave,” she said. Her friend put his arm around her and said, “Option A is not available. So let’s just kick the sh*t out of Option B.”  
Everyone experiences some form of Option B. We all deal with loss: jobs lost, loves lost, lives lost. The question is not whether these things will happen but how we face them when they do. Thoughtful, honest, revealing and warm, OPTION B weaves Sandberg’s experiences with new findings from Adam Grant and other social scientists. The book also features stories of people who have recovered from personal and professional hardships, including illness, injury, divorce, failure, sexual assault and imprisonment. These people did more than bounce back—many of them became stronger. 

OPTION B offers compelling insights for dealing with hardships in our own lives and helping others in crisis. Exploring the psychology of recovery, Sandberg and Grant give readers a path on how to regain confidence and rediscover joy.   Since its release earlier this week, OPTION B has won over hearts and minds everywhere and emerged as one of the great books of the year.
