Product description

Review

De Botton analyses modern society with great charm, learning and humour. His remedies come as a welcome relief when most books offering solutions to the stresses of life recommend the lotus position (Daily Mail)

Measured, amused, compassionate . . . de Botton is a surefooted discoverer of the pungent but less well-known quote (Daily Telegraph)

A purveyor of serious but playful manuals for living (GQ)

Turned me into a fan, for its range, insight, wit and sheer usefulness (Daily Express)

Synopsis

We all worry about what others think of us. We all long to succeed and fear failure. We all suffer to a greater or lesser degree, usually privately and with embarrassment from status anxiety. For the first time, Alain de Botton gives a name to this universal condition and sets out to investigate both its origins and possible solutions. He looks at history, philosophy, economics, art and politics and reveals the many ingenious ways that great minds have overcome their worries. The result is a book that is not only entertaining and thought-provoking but genuinely wise and helpful as well.
