Description

The loss of a loved one, a painful divorce, or a serious physical injury---we must all, at one point, face tragedy---unavoidable moments that divide our lives into “before” and “after.” How do we muscle our way through tough times and emerge stronger, wiser---even grateful for our struggle? In 1984, author Jerry White lost his leg---and almost his life---in a landmine accident. He has endured the pain of loss and the challenge of rebuilding. As cofounder of Survivors Corps, White has interviewed thousands of victims of tragedy. With this book, he shares what he has learned.White outlines a very specific five-step program to coping with disaster; to achieving strength and hope; and to turning tragedy into triumph. In their own words, his survivor friends and colleagues share their stories. It's a group that includes the well known, like Lance Armstrong, Nelson Mandela, and the late Princess Diana, and also everyday survivors. Through their stories and the author's words, the book takes readers step-by-step through the process of not only surviving tragedy and victimhood, but going on to thrive.

display_description Tragedy happens to everyone. Whether it's the loss of a loved one, a painful divorce, or a serious injury, we must all face personal catastrophe-unavoidable moments that divides our lives into "before" and "after." These events take a heavy toll on everyone, but there are those who have muscled their way through tough times and emerged stronger and wiser. Author Jerry White is one such example. In 1984, he lost his leg in a tragic accident. He has personally endured the pain of loss and the challenge of rebuilding. Through the organization he founded, White has interviewed thousands of victims of tragedy. Sharing what he's learned, White outlines an effective five-step program for turning tragedy into triumph: Face Facts, Choose Life, Reach Out, Get Moving and Give Back. In their own words, his fellow survivors share their stories-a group that includes the well-known like Lance Armstrong, Elie Wiesel, and the late Princess Diana, but also everyday people. With compassion, White takes listeners through the process of not only enduring tragedy and victimhood, but going on to thrive.
