    1. As a practitioner in the field of climate change resilience, I was thrilled to find such a timely book on the topic. This is a great book for anyone wanting to learn how cities everywhere are thinking about how they can avoid disastrous consequences through resilient thinking. Most of the book is laid out in chapters explaining the five characteristics of resilience, which are: aware, diverse, integrated, self-regulating, and adaptive. Rodin then takes case studies that illustrate why each chara [...]

    2. A great read. Especially in 2017. Floods in Houston, earthquake in Mexico City, and fires in CA. Three places I have called home! Anyone who doubts stuff happens needs to read this. It is a wake up call for all of us.

    3. I really looked forward to reading this book since resilience is an oft-touted word today. In a world of climate-change and globalisation, resilience is something that many experts feel will help salvage communities and nations. For most part Rodin does a good job explaining the concepts, and the frameworks so that the reader has a clearer idea of the resilience paradigm. She brings together some good examples of social resilience which happened post-disaster, along with some which I feel are ne [...]

    4. Resilience is an underrated capability, both individually and organizationally. Through a plethora of examples, the author drives home the point that companies and governments which consciously identify and develop plans to survive unusual events and catastrophes better prosper over the long term. I would have been interested in an exploration of what drives bureaucratic complacency in large organizations, along with warning signs and additional methods of overcoming such complacency. There is a [...]

    5. This book uses a number of local disasters, both historical and recent, and reviews how various communities deal with the trials and tribulations that follow major disruptions. It argues that measures to build resiliency and stronger communities benefit the communities' abilities to withstand major disruptions and ultimately be better off for it. The author references systems thinking to finding better ways to improve a community's resiliency in the long-run. The stories used about recent and hi [...]

    6. This book's topic - how we can prepare our communities for the onslaught of climate change, and other natural and human-made crises - is right in my wheelhouse. But it was no mere work read. It was chock full of fascinating case studies and a broader discussion about not just the mechanics of planning for the future, but how to *think* about what's ahead. If you're interested in a smarter future in the face of enormous risk, and what's happening around the world, this is a very worthwhile read.

    7. Rodin makes a classic nonfiction mistake in 'The Resilience Dividend' -- too many examples and not enough argument. The core ideas are solid but the book drags when it gets into research-dump mode. I would have liked more conclusions/takeaways and fewer historical details about Medellin, the SF earthquake, etc.

    8. A good primer on the concept of resilience that includes a number of interesting examples of how communities have "bounced forward" from past disasters and disruptions. As the author says, the hardest thing in the world is to be proactive, but this book works to change our mindsets and help us reap the rewards of a more resilient approach to politics, planning, and the environment.

    9. An interesting book about the need to build resilience in our infrastructure, environments, and communities to face the growing challenges of climate change, urbanization, and globalization. A bit heavy on the jargon and bureaucratic side, but offers some interesting examples and advice. Aimed more at those in industry and government focused on this field

    10. Comprehensive treatment of some of the most important interconnected concepts in this century. I have talked to people who have been dismissive because of Rodin's tendency to promote herself, her friends, and Rockefeller, but I did not think that it distracted from the book's important messages and compelling treatment of an issues that public, private, and individual alike should be considering.

    11. Felt more like a laundry things of how different groups of people bounced back from difficult circumstances. Which, to be fair, is what is technically the definition of resilience, but the thesis of the book was pretty much summed up in a chart on one of the pages of the book. So, you can save the time reading it and just read the chart.

    12. Although the subject is interesting, the book is longer that I'd preferred. Nevertheless, the advice is good on a society level and would benefit those mostly in urban planning but less so individually.

    13. part 8 finally starts getting to the point. overall I would like to read a book on this subject that is done better.
