THE POWER OF ADVERSITY:  Tough Times Can Make You Stronger, Wiser, and Better

I think this book is so timely!  Aren't we all struggling right now with increasing gasoline prices, a floundering economy, and bad news on the evening news every night?  Al Weatherhead's advice about changing your mindset and thinking positively is right on the money, if you'll pardon the cliche'!  

The book is filled with quotable advice like the title of Chapter 10 "There's Always a Great Idea Lurking in Adversity... will you find it?"  I particularly like Appendix A- Adversity Checklist and the worksheets in Appendix B.  When I find myself sinking under the weight of all of the negative "stuff," I will remember Mr. Weatherhead.  What do you think?
