The longing for a destiny is nowhere stronger than in our romantic life we are told at the outset of Alain de Botton s On Love a hip charming and devastatingly witty rumination on the thrills and pitfalls of romantic love br br The narrator is smitten by Chloe on a Paris London flight and by the time they ve reached the luggage carousel he knows he is in love He loves her chestnut hair and pale nape and watery green eyes the way she drives a car and eats Chinese food the gap that makes her teeth Kantian and not Platonic her views on Heidegger s Being and Time although he hates her taste in shoes br On Love plots the course of their affair from the initial delirium of infatuation to the depths of suicidal despair through the Groucho Marxist stage of coming to terms with being loved by the unattainable beloved through a fit of anhedonia defined in medical texts as a disease resulting from the terror brought on by the threat of utter happiness and finally through the nausea induced and terrorist tactics employed when the beloved begins inexplicably to drift away br br Alain de Botton is simultaneously hilarious and intellectually astute shifting with ease among such seminal romantic texts as The Divine Comedy Madame Bovary and The Bleeding Heart a self help book for those who love too much He is schematically flawless funny funky and totally engaging br Filled with profound observations and useful diagrams On Love displays and examines for all of us the pain and exhilaration of love asking Can we not be forgiven if we believe ourselves fated to stumble one day upon the man or woman of our dreams Can we not be excused a certain superstitious faith in a creature who will prove the solution to our relentless yearnings, One of the great but often unmentioned causes of both happiness and misery is the quality of our environment the kinds of walls chairs buildings and streets that surround us br br And yet a concern for architecture and design is too often described as frivolous even self indulgent i The Architecture of Happiness i starts from the idea that where we are heavily influences who we can be and it argues that it is architecture s task to stand as an eloquent reminder of our full potential br br Whereas many architects are wary of openly discussing the word beauty this book has at its center the large and na ve question What is a beautiful building It is a tour through the philosophy and psychology of architecture that aims to change the way we think about our homes our streets and ourselves, We spend most of our waking lives at work in occupations often chosen by our unthinking younger selves And yet we rarely ask ourselves how we got there or what our occupations mean to us br i br The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work i is an exploration of the joys and perils of the modern workplace beautifully evoking what other people wake up to do each day and night to make the frenzied contemporary world function With a philosophical eye and his signature combination of wit and wisdom Alain de Botton leads us on a journey around a deliberately eclectic range of occupations from rocket science to biscuit manufacture accountancy to art in search of what make jobs either fulfilling or soul destroying br br Along the way he tries to answer some of the most urgent questions we can ask about work Why do we do it What makes it pleasurable What is its meaning And why do we daily exhaust not only ourselves but also the planet Characteristically lucid witty and inventive Alain de Botton s song for occupations is a celebration and exploration of an aspect of life which is all too often ignored and a book that shines a revealing light on the essential meaning of work in our lives, What if religions are neither all true or all nonsense The boring debate between fundamentalist believers and non believers is finally moved on by Alain s inspiring new book which boldly argues that the supernatural claims of religion are of course entirely false and yet that religions still have some very important things to teach the secular world br br Religion for Atheists suggests that rather than mocking religions agnostics and atheists should instead steal from them because they re packed with good ideas on how we might live and arrange our societies Blending deep respect with total impiety Alain a non believer himself proposes that we should look to religions for insights into among other concerns how to br br build a sense of community br br make our relationships last br br overcome feelings of envy and inadequacy br br escape the twenty four hour media br br go travelling br br get more out of art architecture and music br br and create new businesses designed to address our emotional needs br br For too long non believers have faced a stark choice between either swallowing lots of peculiar doctrines or doing away with a range of consoling and beautiful rituals and ideas At last in Religion for Atheists Alain has fashioned a far more interesting and truly helpful alternative
