This book makes a compelling case, drawing on stories from countries and communities across the world, that resilience is not just a defense mechanism but a positive gain or dividend, with added value in economic and social terms. The message is timely, given the increasingly disruptive force of climate change and the need to encourage communities to respond positively. It is also a highly readable account because it relies on actual human experience. (Mary Robinson, president of the Mary Robinson Foundation-Climate Justice, and UN Special Envoy on Climate Change)

All with the goal of saving and improving human lives. (Dr Alex Karp, cofounder and CEO, Palantir)

Rodin writes in an expert and straightforward manner about the character trait of resilience, addressed here in socioeconomic terms and on nothing less than a global scale ...

An insightful look at what is known as the resilience dividend (Vanessa Bush Booklist 2014-10-15)
A revealing examination of the anatomy of resilience, the capacity to withstand and emerge stronger from acute shocks and chronic stresses ... A convincing argument that becoming resilient is not only possible, but essential; food for thought for all and especially recommended for community leaders. ( Kirkus 2014-10-15)
Ms. Rodin is a good story teller, and her stories from the United States and around the world form the heart of the book ... Crisis planners will find useful material in The Resilience Dividend, not just a "template for thinking" about crisis management but also, as Ms. Rodin puts it, the "methods for putting that thinking into practice." The rest of us will take heart that, in a world of disruption, there are ways to cope with crisis and even, perhaps, grow stronger as a result. (Melanie Kirkpatrick Wall Street Journal 2014-11-21)
