Our planet, our economy, and our lives are in a constant state of intertwined upheaval, but instead of taking a doomsday approach to this seemingly inevitable wave of change, Andrew Zolli and Ann Marie Healy offer a powerful new lens through which to view the world. Using the emerging field of resilience research, they explain how we can combat the steady disruption of our ecosystems, businesses, and governments with better shock-absorbers.
" Resilience" is a pioneering book that first observes how catastrophes are resolved within a wide range of disciplines from finance and neuroscience to oceanography and social psychology. Through original reporting, the authors then apply these insights to larger questions: Why are some systems more adept at absorbing change while others completely unhinge? Since most systems are interdependent, how can one stave off the impact of crisis upon another?
Provocative and eye-opening, "Resilience" sheds light on the multifaceted nature of change and gives readers access to cutting-edge tools--developed by the leading thinkers of our time--to help us adapt to an ever-evolving world rather than fall prey to its unpredictability.
