Synopsis

This is a book about an almost universal anxiety that rarely gets mentioned directly: an anxiety about what others think of us, about whether were judged a success or a failure. With the help of philosophers, artists, and writers, Alain de Botton examines the origins of status anxiety before revealing ingenious ways in which people have been able to overcome their worries in the search for happiness. The result is a book that isnt just highly entertaining and thoughtprovoking but genuinely wise and helpful, too.
