Von The Reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Adversity Advantage taught me how to take life's challenges and uncertainties and use them to fuel a more purpose-driven life. Erik W. shares incredible adventures from his 7 summits climbs that leave you wanting more. I especially enjoyed the chapter about Erik's descent from 18,501 foot Mt. Elbrus on skis! Paul S. reveals events where corporations have had incredible adversity dumped on them, and by implementing Paul's methods they came out of the adversity in a much greater place than where they had been when the adversity struck. If there is one book to read that will teach you how to succeed in life... this is it.

Adversity Challenge #1: Getting Through this Book! 6. Juni 2007
Von Kevin Quinley - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a decent stab at exercises to help you bounce back from adversity and develop reservoirs of resiliency and toughness. On the other hand, it switches from one author to another and is laden with acronyms and homespun wisdom. The chapter on "Suffering Well" was probably worth the price of admission, but for some reason the book just never was able to engage me.

Just gritting my teeth to the end to finish reading it was my own personal adversity quest, which is not a high compliment to pay.

Insightful, revealing, self-motivating... 10. Januar 2007
Von William K. D'Amico - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Adversity Advantage because it drove me to re-examine how I react and respond to adversity in my own life. It taught me some new techniques for dealing with the obstacles I face every day. It's well written, balanced, and doesn't try to beat you over the head with theoretical jargon like many other books. Instead, it provides practical insight that everyone can understand and assimilate. Great job Mssrs. Stoltz and Weihenmayer !!

Firsthand report of how adversity strengthens character 1. Dezember 2010
Von Rolf Dobelli - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Ludwig van Beethoven went deaf in his mid-20s, but still created sublime music. Albert Einstein's childhood teachers felt he had no academic potential, but he achieved works of genius. What if these brilliant individuals had quit pursuing their dreams, as they easily could have? Erik Weihenmayer became blind at 13, yet he is an accomplished mountain, ice and rock climber, and an expert skier, skydiver, long-distance biker and marathon competitor. Like Beethoven and Einstein, he had a real reason to quit pursuing hard goals. Instead, he decided to climb as high as he could, literally. Weihenmayer and leadership expert Paul G. Stoltz, his co-author, offer a gripping story about turning adversity to your advantage. They explain how to use misfortune to strengthen your character and realize your goals, no matter how difficult. Weihenmayer's first-person inserts and narratives about people who conquered trouble are particularly compelling. getAbstract highly recommends this inspiring celebration of indomitable spirit. It teaches a profound lesson about how bravely facing hardship can enrich your life.

Everyday Greatness 17. Januar 2007
Von W. Barkeley - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is a powerful testimony to the human aspiration to stretch, grow and have meaning. The combination of real life stories and the body of research tells readers that they too can define their everyday greatness. It is not something that is bought, bestowed, borrowed or comes from within. If you are looking for a recipe for the perfect life without having to do work read something else. If you are looking to set higher standards for yourself, your family and the world around you then this book will leave you laughing, crying and enthused to take on the next challenge!
