Synopsis

Discover everything you were never taught at school about how to lead a better life...



Introduced and edited by the bestselling author of The Consolations of Philosophy, The Art of Travel and The Course of Love



'Alain de Botton likes to take big, complex subjects and write about them with thoughtful and deceptive innocence' Observer



We spend years in school learning facts and figures but the one thing we're never taught is how to live a fulfilled life. That's why we need The School of Life - a real organisation founded ten years ago by writer and philosopher Alain de Botton. The School of Life has one simple aim: to equip people with the tools to survive and thrive in the modern world. And the most important of these tools is emotional intelligence.



This book brings together ten years of essential and transformative research on emotional intelligence, with practical topics including:



- how to understand yourself

- how to master the dilemmas of relationships

- how to become more effective at work

- how to endure failure

- how to grow more serene and resilient



The School of Life is nothing short of a crash course in emotional maturity. With all the trademark wit and elegance of Alain de Botton's other writings, and rooted in practical, achievable advice, it show us a path to the better lives we all want and deserve.
