The Building Resilience Handbook is the set work for the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business 2012 MBA class. Professor Kurt April, who teaches the Advanced Leadership module, has selected it as the set work, and structured his lectures on the seven constructs or principles outlined in the book.

The book assists people build their inner resourcefulness to deal with tough jobs and pressurised projects, to cope and even thrive in the face of adversity.
