Product Description

Book Description

A handbook to console, nourish and gently lead us on the path to emotional balance

About the Author

Philippa Perry is a psychotherapist and writer who has written for the Guardian, the Observer, Time Out and Healthy Living

magazine and has a column in Psychologies. In 2010 she wrote the graphic novel Couch Fiction, in an attempt to demystify psychotherapy. She lives in London and Sussex with her husband, the artist Grayson Perry, and enjoys gardening, cooking, parties, walking, tweeting and watching telly.

The School of Life is a London-based enterprise that is dedicated to the most useful ideas relevant to the dilemmas of everyday life. We consider questions like: How can we fulfil our potential? Can work be inspiring? Why does community matter? Can relationships last a lifetime? We don’t have all the answers, but we will direct you towards a variety of useful ideas – from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts – that are guaranteed to stimulate, provoke, nourish and console.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't worry, be happy 27 January 2013
By Alix G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this slender volume to be a very positive guide and surprisingly helpful to short circuiting negative thinking, particularly in breaking through those destructive thought cycles that tend to hit at 3.00am when you are at your most vulnerable. I tried a few of the simple exercises the book describes, and was surprised that they have been relatively effective for me. I selected this book (somewhat sceptically) from a review I read in the Economist, and have not regretted the purchase. It underscores the truth that you cannot control what happens to you, but you can control the way you think about and react to external events.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Economist was spot on 13 May 2013
By cohasset7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ms. Perry's pithy short book is more valuable than so many others in the same domain. Don't let the number of pages devalue the content in your mind. There is exponential real advice here in every concentrated sentence. I bought more to give to colleagues and friends as everyone will relate. The cover caused comment on my boat rode in to Boston. Bewildering to the observer - a small simple clear cover- had knowledge and information that connects and you want to refer to- this has it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful 6 May 2014
By Bob Gillen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While the presentation meanders a bit, the advice is spot on. Helpful guide to essentially taking a deep breath and becoming aware of yourself and how you go through each moment of the day. Detailed steps for focusing yourself. If you read only the last chapter, you'll still come out ahead!

5.0 out of 5 stars it's a quick read with easy to apply lessons 21 September 2014
By Stephanie D Cross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a practical guide for how to live, it's a quick read with easy to apply lessons. The author gave a talk on Youtube on the School of Life station and watching that helped me to decide to purchase her book. I was not disappointed.
