Back and front cover:

With resilience being the number one topic for parents and educators at the moment, I wanted to tackle the subject in my own unique way, give it the ‘Josh Langley’ treatment. Because I don’t have an educational background, I’m not a psychologist or an expert in the field, I can come at resilience from a very simple angle and use my own personal, lived experience as inspiration. I was pretty good at making mistakes, getting into trouble and failing at a few things!
