A 15th anniversary collection of The School of Life's most popular and essential essays on self-knowledge, relationships, work and culture.

The School of Life is an organisation with a focused mission at its heart: to help foster calm, self-understanding and greater emotional maturity. Over 15 years, we have produced landmark essays on key topics, now gathered together for the first time.
Among these, we find:
• On Confidence: a guide to throwing off inhibition and shame in the name of a more free and creative life

• Self-Knowledge: a method for knowing ourselves better in order to make optimal choices in love and work

• Why You Will Marry the Wrong Person: a paradoxically hopeful and wry survey of the trials and joys of marriage

In elegant and always clear prose, the essays take us on a tour around the central topics of emotional life, leaving us enlightened, calmer and readier to greet our inevitable challenges. The book amounts to nothing less than a concise compendium of some of the wisest things we'll ever need to know.
