"The Gift of Adversity" By Dr. Norman Rosenthal

    Adversity is an irreducible fact of life. Although we can and should learn from all experiences, both positive and negative, bestselling author Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal, believes that adversity is by far the best teacher most of us will ever encounter.

Whether the adversity one experiences is the result of poor decision-making, a desire to test one’s mettle, or plain bad luck, Rosenthal believes life’s most important lessons—from the value of family to the importance of occasionally cutting corners—can be best learned from it. He writes about it in his book, The Gift of Adversity: The Unexpected Benefits of Life's Difficulties, Setbacks, and Imperfections.
