Waterstones Says

Renowned for conveying complex themes in an accessible and lively manner, de Botton triumphs once again with this definitive handbook on emotional intelligence and how to develop it. 

This is a book about everything you were never taught at school. It's about how to understand your emotions, find and sustain love, succeed in your career, fail well and overcome shame and guilt. It's also about letting go of the myth of a perfect life in order to achieve genuine emotional maturity. Written in a hugely accessible, warm and humane style, The School of Life is the ultimate guide to the emotionally fulfilled lives we all long for - and deserve.

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
