Riassunto: This is a book about an almost universal anxiety that is rarely mentioned: an anxiety about what others think of us, about whether we?re judged a success or a failure, a winner or a loser. This is a book about status anxiety. Best-selling author Alain de Botton, asks?with lucidity and charm?where our worries about status come from and what, if anything, we can do to surmount them. With the help of philosophers, artists, and writers, he 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. We learn about sandal-less philosophers and topless bohemians, about the benefits of putting skulls on our sideboards, and about looking at ancient ruins. The result is a book that is not only highly entertaining and thought-provoking but genuinely wise and helpful, too.
L'autore: Alain de Botton was born in 1969. He is the author of Essays in Love, The Romantic Movement, Kiss and Tell, How Proust Can Change Your Life, The Consolations of Philosophy and The Art of Travel. He lives in London.
