    Status Anxiety ePUB Ì Paperback status free, anxiety kindle, Status Anxiety ePUBStatus Anxiety by Alain De Botton is a sparkly book that for the most part I enjoyed immensely However like other readers I have some problems with it First a gentle reminder to everyone who approaches a philosophical book like this one all this rationalizing of reality can be helpful sometimes but it is often overestimated especially by academics Even though it should be obvious people tend to forget that reality stays exactly the same with or without philosophical analysis The immense respect that our society gives to the rich and officially successful doesn't change an inch After philosophizing you tend to feel like you have set the world straight you have changed it for the better or at least you feel

    Status Anxiety ePUB Ì Paperback status free, anxiety kindle, Status Anxiety ePUBI loved this book However if you're going to read it be ready to analyze your life uestion your ambition and search for ways in which you can better treat your fellow humansI love comparitive philosophy I especially love it when it's well researched and well written Alain's style is conversational and informative but he doesn't come of sounding academic and esoteric You learn from his research that our modern day obsession with 'stuff' isn't a modern convention I loved this book and recommend it to anyone who uestions our post modern world Don't read it though if you're going through a major life shiftit will just add to the confusion and make you think that the throwing it life all away to join the peace corp is a viable option
