A wonderful discussion that I think has got immense to richness to it. I chat to the boss of St John's Ambulance Martin Houghton-Brown (Martin on Twitter). I was struck with the power of the lessons about connection and identity - we often find ourselves throwing these terms around casually but Martin's testimony brings it vividly to life.

The book is about resilience - how we get it wrong, and where it really lies. There are a lot of mistakes made about resilience and increasingly our teams are getting fed up hearing us talk about it. Fortitude explores where resilience really lives.

The early reviews on the book are sensational.

Steven Bartlett said:

‘This is a truly refreshing, captivating and important book that shifted my perception on a topic I thought I knew! A must read.’

Gary Lineker said:

‘A book that confirms what I've always believed, that we can't be resilient on our own. In fact resilience is about all of us being stronger than any of us.’

Oliver Burkeman said:

‘An important and well-timed book. A fascinating and important pushback against the narrow, 

joy-eroding version of 'resilience' that would leave us to sink or swim alone, Fortitude is an 

indispensable guide to a more energising, human, and effective approach to working and 

thriving in a post-pandemic world’

Noreena Hertz, author of The Lonely Century said:

 'A thought provoking exploration of what it takes to get through tough times and a compelling 

endorsement of the power of others to hold us up’.

Nadiya Hussain said:

'A much needed book that unfolds the surprising secrets of resilience. Something I never knew i needed to read but I'm so glad I did, it’s opened up a whole angle of thinking'

Alastair Campbell said:

‘A fascinating analysis of resilience - what it is, what is isn’t and why, when we develop it together, it becomes something better and more important, fortitude. It seems that resilience is a team game.’

Fortitude. It's really about the myth of resilience.


I found myself writing this book because like all of us I was hearing the word resilience
