5 Stars: I wish our policymakers had the foresight and risk assessment abilities that Dr. Gleb Tsipursky demonstrates. Through this guide, I am confident that myself and family will remain, as resilient as we can be, to the adversities that we face now, and in the next few years ahead. Dr. Tsipursky provides here, the tools and strategies you need to thrive. Without giving spoilers, know that things like denial in the face of facts... can be very bad for your wellbeing. The book helped us to plan and prepare for change and taught me how to be adaptable in my own niche way, in a very dynamic environment. But the book doesn't stop at the individual or family unit: Observations and rational predictions, tools, and strategies for business are also given. Things like networking in a new virtual office environment, security, staff motivation, are also covered. Given our current crisis and short-term outlook, this is truly a guide that you cannot be without. We don't know what the future brings but given the amount of unknowns, we must plan to face adversity, and be prepared. ~ Cory Buott, Amazon
5 Stars: My hope is when you read Dr. Tsipursky’s book that you will recognize the truth, and not just those regarding current events; but truths about yourself. I am more confident after reading this that I have a fully developed plan for the three most likely scenarios after Covid 19. We do not think about the kinds of bias that affect our decision making and I learned they have names. I have never delved into my decision making this deeply before. ~ Barbara Ostaszewski, Amazon US
5 Stars: The author has done a great job creating a concise guide to analyzing the Covid situation. He has integrated behavioral biases to explain why people have done what they have done.
If you are looking for a well written overview of the situation which includes behavioral biases this is your book. If you are looking for needless hysteria this is not for you. ~ Jill Evans, Amazon US
5 Star Rating: We are all aware by now of all the negative aspects of the current COVID-19 pandemic. With the extra downtime that isolating provides, it would benefit all of us to gain some perspective on what has happened, what is currently going on, and what the future might bring. Clearly, we were unprepared for this pandemic. It would help to understand WHY we weren’t prepared, and how we can use our experience this time around to deal with the ongoing and impending new crises effectively.........What better time for behavioral economist and cognitive neuro-scientist Dr. Glen Tsipursky to provide us with a guide to understanding our reactions and those of our leaders in the disastrous response to the Covid -19 pandemic. That he also offers us ideas and strategies to cope with what is likely to be a 2-3 year process of combating and coping with it is a blessing in disguise. In fact, I would say, it doesn’t get more timely for a book like this!......I highly recommend this book to everyone. It may well provide its readers with the strongest medicine available for these difficult times.. ~ Alexandra Leigon, Goodreads
5 Stars: Honestly: I never heard about or read the Changemaker books or its Resilience series. But I gave this particular book a chance due to its author and because coronavirus affects all, me included. I didn’t regret the decision. Not because it saved my life - it wasn’t necessary, fortunately. But because It was a worthy read for me, for both the private person and the business leader....... ~ Laszlo Makay, Goodreads
5 Stars: I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to Dr. Tsipursky to launch such a book which is mostly needed in this situation as it will help us to understand how to adapt to COVID19 effectively, whether we are a private individual focusing on our household and career, or a business, nonprofit, or municipal leader concerned with our organization. It will empower us to make an effective strategic plan to survive and thrive through the pandemic and guide us into the post-pandemic society.......... ~ Tasnuva Tonny, Goodreads
5 Stars: During this time of crisis, taking care of our mental health is of utmost importance. I think one of the best ways to keep our sanity this time is to read books. I am interested in learning facts and information especially related to this pandemic to keep me informed regarding the situation as well as preparing myself on the actions I should take. Good thing that I was able to read the book entitled “Resilience Adapt and Plan for the New Abnormal” and it is very helpful to me...... ~ Jo Anne, Goodreads
5 Stars: By reading this book I have gathered a huge knowledge on how to deal in a difficult situation. I think Dr. Gleb has given us a timely and very informative book. Everybody should read this book to psychologically improve their selves on managing life in a pandemic. I would like to thank Dr Gleb for this great publication.............. ~ KH Monjurul, Goodreads
5 Stars: Amazing book! Thank you Dr. Gleb Tsipursky for publishing “Resilience: Adapt and Plan for the New Abnormal of the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic” book and also thank you for giving us a scope to learn how we can adapt effectively to the reality in this pandemic situation. I think this is a helpful book for me to protect myself from getting involved in dangerous cognitive biases in this Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic......I found the most surprising part of this book is “Think Years, Not weeks”. By reading this book, I have learned about the Planning fallacy Bias which happens when we intuitively feel that our plans will go according to plan. This kind of thought leads us to be not prepared for future problems. I will take this “Defend Your Future” technique included in this book with me to make a strategic long-term plan for an uncertain future..... Thanks again for showing me such a beautiful path to defend my future from this pandemic. ~ Shafayet Karim, Goodreads
5 Stars: A very impressive book about the current crises of COVID-19. I appreciate the author ‘Dr. Gleb’ for the detail-oriented content based on facts, reality, and deep analysis of everything that can help everyone to make decisions for moving forward or survive in the worst situations of Covid-19.........I am impressed when I was reading the Case Study based on Alex (COO) with the following “8 steps to making the best major decisions". I now have a clear mind about my strategies, setting goals with an effective action plan after reading this book.
The planning fallacy bias is something that relates to my situation where I was confident that COVID-19 wasn't going to affect my work because I’m doing all work online. Although this affected me all of a sudden as my results weren't good enough due to taking a long time to finish tasks than usual. This book is currently helping me to make decisions to manage my business, personal life, and being innovative. ~ Shyam Soni, Goodreads
5 stars: This is such an amazing book worth sharing....................... ~ James Melvin, Goodreads
5 Stars: This Book by Dr. Gleb Tsipursky entitled, Resilience: Adapt and Plan for the New Abnormal of the COVID-19 Pandemic, is a rescue guideline in this period of COVID-19. A lot has happened during this period and has changed our lives and the way we live in lots of ways.
As a victim of the Normalcy Bias, I used to plan for short term, instead of long term goals. This bias leads individuals, businesses, and governments to fail to prepare nearly as well as they should for the likelihood and effects of catastrophes, especially slow-moving train wrecks such as pandemics. Moreover, amid the event itself, people react much slower than they should, ideally. We are getting stuck in the mode of gathering information instead of deciding and acting. It’s not surprising that going with our gut reactions lead us astray in response to disasters that slowly gather steam while they spread.
The actions we perceived as solving the problem are illogical and irrational. Such that buying toilet paper and guns becomes a necessity in response to COVID-19. While the normalcy bias is the most harmful cognitive bias from which we suffer in the face of this COVID-19 pandemic, it’s far from the only one. Some other cognitive biases combined with normalcy bias to lead to bad decisions about the pandemic. I am using this book's strategy to remodel my prospects towards building a better long term profiting and promising goals. I do recommend this book at these times for everyone! ~ Beatrice Sargin, Goodreads
