Books by Alain de Botton
Art as Therapy (2013)
3.99 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This book offers a different approach for appreciating art by claiming that art is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also satisfies a deep psychological need. The author argues that art helps us connect with our own experience as humans. I found the first half of the book, in...
The News: A User's Manual (2014)

review 1: Botton's prose is a joy to read and his insights provocative. It is the media that shapes our view of the world and Botton helps the reader to question how it does this. Here is a quote from early on,"Societies become modern, the philosopher Hegel suggested, when news replaces re...

Religion for Atheists: A Non-Believer's Guide to the Uses of Religion (2012)
3.58 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: 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...
