Publisher Description

Hugh van Cuylenburg was a primary school teacher volunteering in northern India when he had a life-changing realisation: despite the underprivileged community the children were from, they were remarkably positive. By contrast, back in Australia Hugh knew that all too many people found it hard to be happy, or suffered from mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety. His own little sister had been ravaged by anorexia nervosa.

How was it that young people he knew at home, who had food, shelter, friends and a loving family, struggled with their mental health, while these kids seemed so contented and resilient? He set about finding the answer and in time came to recognise the key traits and behaviours these children possessed were gratitude, empathy and mindfulness.

In the ensuing years Hugh threw himself into studying and sharing this revelation with the world through The Resilience Project, with his playful and unorthodox presentations which both entertain and inform. Now, with the same blend of humour, poignancy and clear-eyed insight that The Resilience Project has become renowned for, Hugh explains how we can all get the tools we need to live a happier and more fulfilling life.

One of the greatest books I’ve ever read.

Despite hearing a lot of Hugh’s life experiences already via interviews and podcasts, I still enjoyed every second of this audiobook. I feel it’s something everyone should read/listen to and i’ll be telling anyone that will listen to buy it. Thank you Hugh for everything you do, the worlds a better place with you in it.

Mind altering

This book gave me goosebumps, made me cry and made me happy. I have got the TRP app and am going to give it a go every day for 21 days is my first goal. I can’t reccomend this book enough, an easy listen yet insightful and inspiring.
