         Sandberg and Matalin discussed building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks. After the sudden death of her husband, Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. Grant, her friend and a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are steps people can take to recover and even rebound. “Option B” combines Sandberg’s emotional insights and Grant’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity.
