#217 Alain de Botton: Life As A Process
Today's guest is Alain de Botton, which is very exciting, I've been a huge fan of this work for years.
He is a writer of essayistic books that have been described as a ‘philosophy of everyday life.’ He’s written on love, travel, architecture and literature. His books have been bestsellers in 30 countries. He started writing at a young age. His first book, Essays in Love was published when he was twenty-three and went on to sell millions of copies.
He is also the co-founder of the brilliant The School of Life, a platform and in real life space in London dedicated to a new vision of education, emotional intelligence and self-knowledge. It shows us a path to the better lives we all want and deserve. I really recommend checking out the youtube channel, it's an incredible resource of inspiration and I always come away having learned something new.
The School of Life's latest book, published on September 2019 is a collection of essays, titled The School of Life: An Emotional Education.
