The Art of the Good Life / Rolf Dobelli
Have you ever...
Spent too long on a powerpoint presentation?
Lost sight of what makes you happy?
Failed to reach a long-term goal?
Become infuriated by queuing, tax or parking tickets?
Broken a promise you knew you'd keep?
Since the dawn of civilisation, we've been asking ourselves what it means to live a good life: how should I live, what will truly make be happy, how much should I earn, how should I spend my time? In the absence of a single simple answer, what we need is a toolkit of mental models, a guide to practical living.
In THE ART OF THE GOOD LIFE , you'll find fifty-two intellectual shortcuts for wiser thinking and better decisions, at home and at work. They may not guarantee you a good life, but they'll give you a better chance.
