What to expect

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Resilient written and read by Rick Hanson.

Experience lasting happiness, love and peace

The author of the New York Times bestselling Hardwiring Happiness, Rick Hanson is known for his trademark blend of neuroscience, positive psychology and contemplative practices. In Resilient, he explains how to build the very foundations of well-being by harnessing the power of positive experiences to build an unshakeable core.

Dr. Hanson has distilled 40 years of clinical work and teaching into 12 highly effective tools. Working with these tools allows you to enter a positive cycle which creates a sense of well-being, which in turn establishes resilience, which feeds upon itself to strengthen you.

Developed from his incredibly popular online course called The Foundations of Well-Being, here is the groundwork you need to be able to meet life with a whole heart.
