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.
On our own, can we make a difference? Of all six books, this was the one I was drawn to most, the examples of change, one person at a time, are inspiring and thought-provoking. John-Paul Flintoff also looks at the wider picture showing people who are working at reconciliation and pushing for major changes, giving us some hope for the future.
