On Seeing and Noticing

Author(s): Alain de Botton


Every book tells a story . . .
And the 70 titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth and quality that formed part of the original Penguin vision in 1935 and that continue to define our publishing today. Together, they tell one version of the unique story of Penguin Books.

Alain de Botton believes that philosophy can help people enjoy happier lives. And since joining Penguin in 2000 when his Consolations of Philosophy became a bestseller, his unique blend of erudition and self-help has reached an audience eager to listen.
In On Seeing and Noticing he takes everyday concerns - such as expressing sadness or being romantic - and dispenses advice and observations based on the works of some of history's greatest writers, artists and thinkers.
