Small Pleasures, The School of Life, Alain de Botton
So often, we exhaust ourselves and the planet in a search for very large pleasures--while all around us lies a wealth of small pleasures, which--if only we paid more attention--could daily bring us solace and joy at little cost and effort. But we need some encouragement to focus our gaze.
This is a book to guide us to the best of life's small pleasures: everything from the distinctive delight of holding a child's hand to the enjoyment of disagreeing with someone to the joy of the evening sky; an intriguing, evocative mix of small pleasures that will heighten our senses and return us to the world with new-found excitement and enthusiasm.
