What They Forgot To Teach You At School

Regular price

A collection of the essential emotional lessons we need in order to thrive. By The School of Life. 

We probably went to school for what felt like a very long time. We probably took care of our homework. Along the way, we surely learned intriguing things about equations, the erosion of glaciers, the history of the Middle Ages, and the tenses of foreign languages.

But why, despite all the lessons we sat through, were we never taught the really important things that dominate and trouble our lives: who to start a relationship with, how to trust people, how to understand one’s psyche, how to move on from sorrow or betrayal, and how to cope with anxiety and shame?

Chapters include:

You Don’t Need Permission
