What: School of Life presents an irreverent but inspiring twist on the self-help book. Short, sharp volumes focus on guiding you through the pressing issues in your life - how can you think more about exercise? How can you find fulfilling work? How can you learn to thrive in a digital age? How can you stay sane?! Bring order and calm to your life.
How: "The School of Life offers radical ways to help us raid the treasure trove of human knowledge." - The Independent on Sunday.
Who: Philippa Perry. There is no simple set of instructions that can guarantee sanity, but if you want to overcome emotional difficulties and become happier, psychotherapist Philippa Perry argues that there are four cornerstones to sanity you can influence to bring about change. By developing your self-observation skills, examining how you relate to others, breaking out of your comfort zone and exploring new ways of defining yourself, she demonstrates that it is possible to become a little less tortured and a little more fulfilled. This book is at once a brilliant explanation of our minds and a profoundly useful guide to facing up to the many challenges life throws our way.
Why: The School of Life - your escape from the school of hard knocks.
