"From Facebook's COO and Wharton's top-rated professor, the #1New York Timesbest-selling authors ofLean InandOriginals:a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about building resilience and moving forward after life's inevitable setbacks. After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. "I was in 'the void,'" she writes, "a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe." Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build. Option B combines Sheryl's personal insights with Adam's eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Beginning with the gut-wrenching moment when she finds her husband, Dave Goldberg, collapsed on a gym floor, Sheryl opens up her heart--and her journal--to describe the acute grief and isolation she felt in the wake of his death. But Option B goes beyond Sheryl's loss to explore how a broad range of people have overcome hardships including illness, job loss, sexual assault, natural disasters, and the violence of war. Their stories reveal the capacity of the human spirit to persevere. and to rediscover joy. Resilience comes from deep within us and from support outside us. Even after the most devastating events, it is possible to grow by finding deeper meaning and gaining greater appreciation in our lives. Option B illuminates how to help others in crisis, develop compassion for ourselves, raise strong children, and create resilient families, communities, and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to everyday struggles, allowing us to brave whatever lies ahead. Two weeks after losing her husband, Sheryl was preparing for a father-child activity. "I want Dave," she cried. Her friend replied, "Option A is not available," and then promised to help her make the most of Option B. We all live some form of Option B. This book will help us all make the most of it"--"The author's experience with grief after the sudden death of her husband, combined with social science on resilience"--… (mer)

It took me a lot of effort to finish this book, having read it over a long period of time. I find Sandberg‘s writing style to be challenging because of its repetition and her style of storytelling. I find the points that she makes moving, compelling, and enduring. I just wish that the writing style worked better for me. I am taking part in the conversation on this book soon, so I made sure to finish it. In the end, I’m glad I did. ( )

In Option B, Sheryl Sandberg (and Adam Grant) tells the tragic story of losing her husband and her process of overcoming devastating loss. Throughout the narrative they offer insights for growing in resilience and all sorts of advice in processing trauma.

Some of my take-aways:
She describes the movement from acute to normal grief, the perks of joy found in "flow," and even gives an overview of Dweck's Mindset. She provides research based results of journaling 3 things you did well at and later writing 3 things you're thankful for at the end of each day. Simply put, research points to positive results for journaling on just about anything.

We have to deal with the three P's of trauma: personalization - blaming yourself, pervasiveness - sadness invaded all aspects of life, and permanence - you believe your sadness and grief will continue forever and you'll never find joy again.

It's also helpful to name the elephant in the room. Don't ignore your friends when tragedy strikes. Ask them questions; acknowledge the difficulty. Everyone is better for it.

Another study they reference details the help of a "panic button." Researchers learned that simply having an option available eased stress even when they didn't use it.

I'm sure it was a cathartic process for Sandberg writing this book. Personally, I was annoyed by how often she referenced Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg - I don't think less famous people talk about their bosses or jobs as much as she did. For the lonely or poor, much of her advice wouldn't be helpful. Nevertheless, recommended for those going through tragedy - probably after acute grief has subsided some. Plenty to reflect on and lots of practical advice.

Pretty mixed feelings about this book but mainly negative ones if I'm being honest. On the one hand I absolutely respect the author for expressing the pain, grief, guilt and even insecurity that a tragic death can impart. It's not easy being vulnerable especially when you are well known person.

Having said that I found the book difficult to get through and not just because it's tragic, but because I largely found it repetitive and full of uplifting cliches that I couldn't take seriously dispute the authors genuine tragic experience.

Perhaps another reason, I didn't like the book that much was due to the fact that the author is so high profile? Like I had a hard time relating to many of her experiences (basically they were things a wealthy, well known person would experience) and felt like parts of the book read like advertisements or testimonials for working at companies like Facebook. Which felt a bit out of place considering the books subject matter. ( )

In chapters 8, Finding Strength Together, Sandberg speaks to resilience.......
"Resilience is not just built in individuals. It is built among individuals -- in our neighborhoods, schools, towns, and governments. When we build resilience together, we becomestronger ourselves and form communities that can overcome obstacles and prevent adversity."p.130
"Along with shared hope and experiences, shared narratives can build collective resilience. Narratives might sound "light" --how important can a story be? --but they are how we explain our past and set expectations for our future." p. 133

Creating a collective strength, this is a powerful reason to pick up this book.

It's more an autobiography than a how to be resilient book. Not what I was hoping for ( )
