With the help of philosophers, artists, and writers, Alain de Botton examines the origins of status anxiety before revealing ingenious ways in which people have been able to overcome their worries in the search for happiness. The result is a book that isn't just highly entertaining and thought-provoking but genuinely wise and helpful, too.
