THE SCHOOL OF LIFE: An Emotional Education By Alain De Botton


The essential guide to surviving modern life - a crash course in emotional maturity from the bestselling author of The Consolations of Philosophy

This is a book about everything you were never taught at school. It's about how to understand your emotions, find and sustain love, succeed in your career, fail well and overcome shame and guilt. It's also about letting go of the myth of a perfect life in order to achieve genuine emotional maturity. Written in a hugely accessible, warm and humane style, The School of Life is the ultimate guide to the emotionally fulfilled lives we all long for - and deserve.
