How to Stay Sane,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Stay Sane (School of Life) (Kindle Edition)
A short book this nevertheless gives food for thought to anyone who has ever considered whether they can do anything to preserve their own sanity. It is divided into four sections: - Self-Observation, Relating to Others, Stress and What's the Story? The last section heading may seem a little off the wall but it is about the stories we tell ourselves about our own lives and the world around us.
The most important section of the book is, in my opinion, the exercises at the end of it. If carried out properly these are likely to improve anyone's ability to analyse themselves and to make sense of the way they behave and think.
There are also notes on each section and a chapter headed `Homework' which is about books consulted and which provides further reading for those interested in exploring the subject further. I found the book easy to understand and it was written in a relaxed style which made the subject matter easily accessible.
