“The Facebook executive’s deeply personal self-help book — written with organizational psychologist Adam Grant — illustrates that nothing can inoculate us against grief. But interspersed among devastating scenes about the death of her husband in 2015 are powerful strategies for coping when your world feels like it’s falling apart.”

Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy is Sheryl Sandberg’s effort to help others find the right path to achieve a new and fulfilling life, when the existing one that they had hoped for, is entirely out of the question.
Sandberg’s ways to achieve this feat can initially seem like more of an implacable anguish, but in the long run, it will help the readers achieve what they have always wanted to.
Option B is extremely strong from the very beginning. The research portion of this book includes the discussion of Martin Seligman’s 3 Ps that can shackle a lucid recovery from grief: permanence, pervasiveness and personalization.
According to Sandberg, the ones who are grieving might always feel like blaming themselves for becoming the cause of the grief, which might very rarely be the case. In turn, they can always choose to believe that in spite of everything being awful and overshadowed by grief, the better and still enjoyable parts of life can be cherished easily, such as the beauty of a flower touched by rain or a simple, witty joke.
This book is indeed a work of extreme quality research that is backed up by real-world experiences. Though this isn’t probably the first preference for someone who has suffered a loss, it is a wonderful resource that can give a new ray of hope for those who are in grief.
