About the book

'Resilience' has become virtually a buzz word, used confusingly in all sorts of ways in all kinds of systems - a worrying trend which runs the danger of it being dismissed. Yet in today’s rapidly changing and unpredictable world - particularly in relation to climate - resilience is an important attribute we should all consider and embrace. The book is written in non-technical language, intended for general readership.
