If ever there was a time for courage, it’s now. In The Courage Companion, the co-authors of the bestselling Living Life as a Thank You present stories of extraordinary fortitude. These true tales not only invite the reader to “tap into—and hold onto—our inner strength when times get tough and when we’re feeling all alone” but also act as guides to inspire anyone to just do it, whatever the “it” may be.

Authors Mary Beth Sammons and Nina Lesowitz have voyaged the front lines of adversity and fear to find the brave hearts who confronted and overcame obstacles in ways that inspire us all. From world-class athletes to business and humanitarian leaders, and from cancer patients to ordinary people who took extraordinary action to transform their lives, these courage warriors will show you how to turn apprehension into action.

Quotes & Awards

  • The Courage Companion is a tool chest for the realization of our truest dreams. Lesowitz and Sammons show by inspiring examples and gritty wisdom that the runway to courage lies within us, in unsuspected places, then guides us into take-off and shows us how to soar.”

    Alan Kaufman, author of Jew Boy

  • “A welcome and positive take on what lies within us once tragedy strikes. The Courage Companion is the perfect antidote to feeling lost in times of chaos and challenge.”


  • “A handy, compact book whose size belies the big impact its many stories hold within. These true stories of ordinary people who have acted with extraordinary courage encourage you to act with the same kind of strength.”

    Portland Book Review

  • The Courage Companion is a book I intend to keep by my bedside when I need to be reminded of all the people in the world who have exhibited extraordinary acts of bravery when faced with the every day trial of life. It's impossible to feel alone when you read this book—you cannot help but be inspired.”

    Lee Woodruff, author of Perfectly Imperfect: A Life in Progress

  • “At some point in our life, we all must summon up our courage in order to face our fears—whether those fears are from such things as having to give a speech, embarking on a new career, or facing a medical diagnosis. Yet no one tells us how to develop courage, until now and this wonderful book. In an easy-to-read format, it explains what courage is, how to get it, and provides inspiring stories from those who have it.”

    Allen Klein, Author of The Courage to Laugh: Humor, Hope, and Healing in the Face of Death and Dying
