      Frankl's autobiographical book Man's Search for Meaning () was the foundation of post-traumatic growth theory. This influential book examines the human capacity to transcend suffering, trauma and adversity by finding meaning in even the most difficult of circumstances (Frankl, ). Adversity is a wonderful teacher when we accept that life will take us down unexpected paths. Think about what life has taught you thus far. You know far more than you did a decade ago and are much more equipped to take on new tests when they appear.

      The Power of Adversity Book Review. by Steve M Nash (Yorkshire, England) A classic self-help book, this - Al Weatherhead with Fred Feldman's The Power of Adversity. And I loved how the author had reflected on the adversity in his own life, and understood the life lessons it taught him and continues to teach him today. Anyone thrown into flipped in their own life will find reading this book is an incredible guide to glorifying God, understanding His love in tragedy and demonstrating the very nature of victory through faith, hope, and love. ~ Dr. Lawrence Mendelsohn, Medical Oncologist Founding Medical Director of The CARTI Regional Cancer Center, Little Rock, AR.
