“Option B is the single wisest book about grief I have ever found … I have tried to think of anyone who would not find Option B invaluable at some point in their life, and I can’t.” (Decca Aitkenhead Guardian)
“Remarkable, generous, honest, [and] almost unbearably poignant … This is a book that will be quietly passed from hand to hand, and it will surely offer great comfort to its intended readers.” (New York Times)
“It’s a humbling – and tearjerking – story of humanity.” (Marisa Bate The Pool)
“I recommend this inspiring book to everyone around the world. None of us can escape sadness, loss, or life’s disappointments, so the best option is to find our Option B.” (MALALA YOUSAFZAI, Nobel Peace Prize winner)
“Sheryl writes about her own heartbreaking experience with a rare honesty. Then she and Adam translate her personal story into a powerful, practical guide for anyone trying to build resilience in their own lives, communities, and companies. It’s hard enough to resonate with readers. It’s even harder to help take concrete steps towards a better future. Option B does both.” (BILL AND MELINDA GATES, co-chairs of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation)
