The Anatomy of Hope: How People Prevail in the Face of Illness by Jerome Groopman

Why do some people find and sustain hope during difficult circumstances, while others do not? What can we learn from those who do, and how is their example applicable to our own lives?The Anatomy of Hopeis a journey of inspiring discovery, spanning some thirty years of Dr. Jerome Groopmans practice, during which he encountered many extraordinary people and sought to answer these questions. This profound exploration begins when Groopman was a medical student, ignorant of the vital role of hope in patients livesand it culminates in his remarkable quest to delineate a biology of hope. With appreciation for the human elements and the science, Groopman explains how to distinguish true hope from false hopeand how to gain an honest understanding of the reach and limits of this essential emotion.
