OVERCOMING: LESSONS IN TRIUMPHING OVER ADVERSITY
AND THE POWER OF OUR COMMON HUMANITY
BY DR. AUGUSTUS WHITE WITH JON LAND, DAVID CHARNOFF
AND FOREWARD BY MIKE "COACH K" KRZYZEWSKI
America is at a crossroads, having faced one of the greatest crises in our history. Now, how do we find the strength to go on, to persevere, to thrive in the face of overwhelming adversity?
How do we cope? Where can we find the resilience to overcome the changes
forced upon us? What might our future look like?
The answers lie in Overcoming and the lessons we can learn from everyday heroes who found the strength to persevere through life crises that threatened to overwhelm them, just as we feel overwhelmed today. Their stories are unified by an exploration of how we are stronger together and how the bonds of common humanity hold us together.
Groundbreaking physician and bestselling author Dr. Augustus White III, no stranger to adversity himself, has fashioned an essential manual on not only surviving in a post-coronavirus world, but even thriving in it, as those in this book have.
- Like Herman Williams, a doctor on the verge of realizing his dream
only to see it dashed forever, forcing him to find a new and greater one.
- Or Dr. Ann Hagan Webb, a victim of sexual abuse as a young girl who
now counsels other victims, both young and old.
- Or Josh Perry, born with Down syndrome, who didn't let them stop
him from becoming a professional Hollywood actor.
- Or Krystal Cantu, who overcame the devasting loss of an arm in an
accident to pursue a career in fitness and physical training.
- Or Mangok Bol, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan who survived and built
a new life for himself in the United States.
Renowned and celebrated surgeon Gus White, "the Jackie Robinson of orthopedics," introduces us to everyday individuals united by grit, determination, and resilience. Their stories are sure to not only inspire us, but also chart a course we can follow to the other side of the coronavirus crisis.
These stories and more will inspire you, providing hope that no matter how bleak and dark things seem, the light is always shining somewhere close by.
Overcoming will teach all of us how to find it.
