The seeds of this book started in the 1980s when Dr. Jerry Lerner was the medical director of a rehabilitation hospital treating major disabling conditions such as stroke, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, etc. Despite their major traumas and losses, many found the capacity in themselves to rebound and recreate a positive, meaningful life with the support of good care and treatment. Yet there were others who did not do well although they received the same good treatment for the same conditions. Their pain and suffering persisted.

Dr. Lerner found himself asking himself - why do some people recover from difficulties and loss while others remain stuck? That prompted Dr. Lerner to devote his life to discovering the secrets to resilience. Later in his career, working with chronic pain, trauma, and addiction this question persisted. For over three decades he studied the problem of lost resilience and worked with patients one-on-one to determine their individual roadblocks. During this work, he made a stunning and life-altering discovery. Like a combination lock that requires the right numbers to be aligned to open it, he found four distinct but interconnected areas that when addressed will unlock the resilience in each of us.

Unraveled to Unrivaled, Embracing the Four Dimensions of Resilience, he shares how a resilient lifestyle, resilient emotional tone, resilient thinking, and resilient connections are essential to sustaining balance and peace in life. With a compassionate approach and with his decades of experience witnessing the success of his method, Dr. Lerner lays out his exact formula that addresses each dimension of life that is necessary to build sustainable resilience.
