The School of Life: An Emotional Education By School of Life
The School of Life: An Emotional Education By School of Life. Emotional intelligence affects every aspect of the way we live, from romantic to professional relationships, from our inner resilience to our social success. One decade ago, Alain de Botton founded The School of Life, an institute dedicated to understanding and improving our emotional intelligence. Now he presents the gathered wisdom of those ten years in a wide-ranging and innovative compendium of emotional intelligence which forms an introduction to The School of Life. Using his trademark mixture of analysis and anecdote, philosophical insight, and practical wisdom, he considers how we interact with each other and with ourselves, and how we can do so better.
