News Release

May 19, 2006, Washington D.C.– The Resiliency Advantage by psychologist Al Siebert was named the winner of the 2006 Independent Publisher Book Awards in the "Self Help" category at BookExpo America. The award was accepted by Steve Piersanti, CEO of Berrett-Koehler, the publisher. BEA, held May 19-21, at the Washington D.C. Convention Center, is the largest book publishing event in the U.S. with over 2000 exhibitors, many famous speakers, and attendance over 40,000.

Last year 1,327 publishers from all 50 U.S. states, Canada, and many foreign countries participated in the Award competition, entering 2,068 titles. The self-help category is the largest of many book categories judged. One winner is selected from each category, along with 2 finalists. For The Resiliency Advantage to come out on top of such a vast array of competing books attests to the exceptionally high quality of both the writing and the content.

The Resiliency Advantage: Master Change, Thrive Under pressure, and Bounce Back From Setbacks is a breakthrough book that shows how to benefit from the emerging new science of resiliency psychology. Endorsed by a past president of the American Psychological Association, it is the first personal development book that includes stories about public sector workers as outstanding examples of resiliency.

Dr. Al Siebert is the Director of the Resiliency Center and is the author of several books, including The Survivor Personality and The Adult Student’s Guide to Survival and Success.
