How Philosophy Can Change Your Life, Alain de Botton | The Blog of Author Tim Ferriss

In 1997, he turned away from writing novels and instead wrote an extended essay titled How Proust Can Change Your Life, which became an unlikely blockbuster.

life’ and subjects include love, travel, architecture, religion and
work. His other bestsellers include Essays In Love, Status Anxiety, and The Architecture Of Happiness. More recent works include The
