'Mindful nihilism is all about seeing yourself as an insignificant cog in the universe - and it works' Evening Standard In an era defined by stress and selfishness, self-care, and obsessive individuality, emptiness can offer peace. A balm for the soul of burnt-out Millennials - disillusioned with the search for meaning through career success, a beautiful life and a beautiful Instagram account - The Sunny Nihilist explains why achievement has not made us happy. Looking anew at a philosophy usually associated with grumpy pessimists, writer Wendy Syfret examines our modern experience of work, love, religion and wider society, and asks whether a touch of upbeat nihilism could actually lighten our loads. Making the case for rejecting the cult of purpose and accepting our un-importance in the universe as a positive reality, The Sunny Nihilist urges us to be cheerful in the face of it - because if nothing matters, we might as well be happy and good to each other.

You could tie yourself in knots wondering WHAT IT ALL MEANS. . . or you could read Wendy's book and feel instantly more relaxed and chilled out. The antidote to anxious times -- Brigid Delaney, author of Wellmania and This Restless Life
Sharp ... This hopeful and breezy take will have philosophy-minded readers believing that an ordinary existence can indeed "become celestial" - if the perspective is right * Publishers Weekly *
