Reviews

'Adrian Furnham is the best known social psychologist in the UK. He is widely travelled, widely read, broadly educated, and has a keen eye for the gritty absurdities of organizational life. This book, a collection of wide ranging and sharp observations on how management affects the well-being of everyone is a witty, fun, engaging, provocative, and ultimately very rewarding read.'

-Robert Hogan, CEO Hogan Assessments, USA

'Furnham's latest masterpiece expertly blends academic rigour, real-world relevance and pithy observations to help managers and scholars alike get to grips with issues like how to build a team for resilience, getting the best out of people and dealing with the daily grind.'

-Dr Mark Batey, Manchester Business School

'The Resilient Manager is another excellent book in the series. In these turbulent times, to survive and flourish managers need to be resilient. Professor Furnham has done a masterful job in helping managers confront this challenge a must read for all managers.'

-Cary L. Cooper, CBE, Pro Vice Chancellor for External Relations & Distinguished Professor of Organizational Psychology & Health Lancaster University Management School

'Resilience, almost more than any other attribute, is needed to survive in a world where you are continually bombarded with competing and often biased views on everything, and where change is always top of the agenda. Resilience is a key attribute for a manager to survive in this kind of environment. This book explains the problems of modern management, identifies resilience as a key issue and provides helpful suggestions.'

-Professor Chris J. Jackson, Head of School, School of Management Australian School of Business
