Option B: facing adversity, building resilience and finding joy

See all formats and editions

In 2015 Sheryl Sandberg's husband, Dave Goldberg, died suddenly at the age of forty-eight.

Sandberg and her two young children were devastated, and she was certain that their lives would never have real joy or meaning again.

Just weeks later, Sandberg was talking with a friend about the first father-child activity without a father.

They came up with a plan for someone to fill in. 'But I want Dave,' she cried. Her friend put his arm around her and said, 'Option A is not available.

So let's just kick the shit out of Option B.' Everyone experiences some form of Option B.

We all deal with loss: jobs lost, loves lost, lives lost.

Thoughtful, honest, revealing, and warm, 'Option B' weaves Sandberg's experiences coping with adversity with new findings from Adam Grant and other social scientists.
