Resilience: Why Things Bounce Back, a new book by PopTech Executive Director Andrew Zolli, is available today!

After three years of work, Resilience: Why Things Bounce Back, which PopTech Executive Director and Curator Andrew Zolli co-authored with Ann Marie Healy, was published today by Free Press. The book explores a new framework for understanding change: resilience — why some systems, people, organizations and ecosystems are able to persist, and even thrive, amidst disruption. Zolli elaborates:

We live in this world that has been dominated by shocks and surprises….How do we deal with that kind of world? That question has driven a new conversation about resilience. It’s a conversation about how to build organizations and communities and nations and indviduals that can maintain their core purpose with integrity under the widest variety of circumstances and can deal with disruption no matter what it looks like.

For a visual explanation of a few themes covered inResilience, have a look at the book’s trailer.
