Back from the Edge: Saved by Resilience
by Meg Carbonatto

Back from the Edge is a riveting collection of 15 stories from people who have faced life threatening and life changing situations. Meg Carbonatto talks revealingly with men and women from New Zealand and Australia about what they've faced and, in some cases, are still facing - trials by fire and water, accident, illness, exile, displacement and death.

She gives an expert summary of what people did to reclaim their lives. These are gripping, heart-warming and inspiring tales of 'ordinary' people who have literally looked over the abyss but have been able to come back from the edge.

How would you cope if you lost your farm, your means of livelihood, and your wife within a short period of time? How might you find the moral and physical strength to stay alive in the ocean for four days without seeing any evidence of a search for you? How would you have managed when you and your family had lost everything in a bush fire?

Many people cannot imagine physically surviving such situations, let alone coming back psychologically as a result. Yet by analysing the strategies of those who have prevailed over tough times they show how we too can respond with resilience and optimism to both the major challenges and the everyday struggles in our lives.
