“I started The School of Life from a sense that schools forget to teach you so much of the stuff we need to get by in this world. Where is instruction in relationships, in the management of career, in the raising of children, in the pursuit of friendship, in the wise approach to anxiety and death: about the are of life I call emotional intelligence. We have been going for several years now and we have done a lot. It’s the thing I’m proudest to have done in my life. We’re trying to bring order and coherence to a confusing part of everyone’s life.”

Alain de Botton – Writer and Founder of The School of Life.
