Voor mij een fantastisch boek. Beschrijft zeer goed het gevoel van melancholie wat helemaal géén ziekte is wat psychiaters ook mogen beweren. Melacholische mensen zijn niet constant ongelukkig, integendeel zou ik zelfs zeggen.

This book is fine. It sets out to do something and it does it. It is a tad bit long, but this isn’t a “read before bedtime” type of book. This is an informational book about different feelings and how to talk about those feelings with other people. This book serves its purpose.

I read most of this during a week when I was traveling for my grandmother's funeral, and this was like a gentle hug for my brain.

I have been a fan of Alain de Botton and The School of Life for quite some time, so when I saw this on the shelves at my local bookstore, I purchased it immediately.

Occasionally I was a little bit frustrated by how dialed into a particular audience this book felt -- highly educated, upper-middle class, pursuing competitive professional careers. I fall into parts of that, obviously, but sometimes the advice in this book felt a bit limited by being locked into a particular worldview. Particular definitions of stability, relationships, etc.

But overall I did love this, and needed its gentle tone of compassionate understanding that week in particular.

Like every other work of art from The School of Life, this is very good.

I have realised that many beliefs and limitations that I hold up comes from my childhood and past experiences. I could bulldoze my way forward by putting more energy without processing or acknowledging the past. That eventually hurts me and the people around me. A better way is, to process, understand and recognise on the past and let the unstuck emotions flow through. I learnt this key lesson in the last year and this book is a reinforcement of that learning.

This is also a good book about parenting. In parenting context, I wanted to learn more about the British therapist Donald Winnicott. This book is an excellent introduction to his works and writings.
