Book Launch: BOUNCING BACK! by Andrew Matthews

Why do some people bounce back from disappointment and disaster – but others never recover?
In Andrew Matthews’ latest book BOUNCING BACK!, he examines seven things that resilient and happy people do.

Andrew explains how we can do what they do.
BOUNCING BACK! is about rebounding from failure, poverty, illness, loneliness, tragedy and grief.
Andrew shares stories of 60 people – some famous, and some we have never heard of – to explain:

  • that everybody fails and everybody hurts
  • why most disasters are not TOTAL disasters
  • why persistence matters more than talent
  • how life can be even better after disappointment and disaster.

BOUNCING BACK! is illustrated with Andrew’s trademark cartoons.
