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 tragic accident. As co-founder of Survivors Corps, White has interviewed thousands of victims of tragedy. With this book, he shares what he has learned. White outlines his successful five-step program for coping with life's worst, and for turning tragedy into triumph. And then 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 you step by step through the process of not only surviving tragedy and victimhood, but going on to thrive.
