Emotional intelligence affects every aspect of the way we live, from romantic to professional relationships, from our inner resilience to our social success. It is the ultimate soft skill of the twenty-first century.
It is also the core focus area of the hugely successful School of Life organization, founded and run by reigning master of popular philosophy, Alain de Botton.
For ten years this organization has offered practical guidance and wisdom from a team of world class specialists to ordinary people who want to live better. Now this extraordinary body of work is drawn together, shaped and introduced by de Botton himself, in an encyclopaedia of how we interact with each other and with ourselves, and how we can do so better.
