Publisher's Summary

If ever there was a time for us to be resilient, it was when a deadly virus engulfed the planet. As death rates soared and crippling lockdowns kicked in, the Resilience Project founder Hugh Van Cuylenburg was one of the people Australia turned to in order to find out how to cope. Under pressure to deliver good news in a historic crisis, it didn't take long for the Melbourne-based educator to realise he wasn't coping.

Like millions of people around the world, Hugh was forced to reassess life during the 2020-21 pandemic as COVID undermined our sense of safety, strangled our personal connections and saw levels of happiness plunge. After taking the time to address his own problems, Hugh recognised he was being hamstrung by the same powerful issues that undermine the lives of many: our feelings of shame, our quest for perfection and the toxicity of social media.

In this follow-up to the best-selling The Resilience Project: Finding Happiness Through Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness, Hugh combines powerful insight with research and his own disarming and candid storytelling to show how it is possible to let go of the things that are stopping us from feeling connected, safe and happy.

The Resilience Project was my mid life this is my vulnerable life

Hugh! You have done it again. A book that truly captures the essence of having to turn over a new leaf and live with vulnerability. I read The Resilience Project at the start of 2020 just before the pandemic hit. To say it changed mine and my families life is an understatement. We even did grateful’s at our wedding. I began searching after reading that for more on vulnerability and that led me to Brene Brown who has just taken me to a new level with her podcast Unlocking Us. I have been leaving her comments to try and get you on there. That is a conversation that would be amazing. This book is true and real and raw and just so relatable. I wish you every success. My favorite parts were all the Ryan parts. The stories of MB and the kid from cedar were so moving. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is ready to live their best life and just wants to hear that it will be okay. Thanks Hugh!

High Hopes Fulfilled!

After reading Hugh’s first book TRP, I admittedly had high hopes for his new book. To say he fulfilled my hopes is an understatement. Hugh is such an amazing story teller and with his blend of entertainment and education it’s a book you just can’t stop listening to. Thank you Hugh for your vulnerability, humility, humour and wisdom. Everyone needs to listen to this book!

Lacks something from first book

I read a lot on this subject this book has no substance and sounds indulgent.
