    I liked these essays because they touch the most important topic for this period of my life - self knowledge. I especially enjoyed the chapter - honesty and denial. We lie to ourselves about a lots of various reasons and it is for each one of us to look deeply into our souls and minds...

    Fantastic introduction with helpful exercises for how to start knowing yourself?and your faulty mind?better. Like all books of this nature, it is likely not for everyone, but fans of School of Life's Youtube channel (of which I am one) will surely appreciate this little volume. It'...

    This is a brief essay in the form of a book. It's been a while since I last read about EQ and this worked like an ice bucket for me to remember some things about myself. ...

    This is a nice read. Whether you already know what they are discussing or not, it can be an enjoyable book to (re)visit the concepts highlighted in it. I also liked the easy to follow style, which diverges from usual didactic or scientific styles that can accompany these kind of top...

    A quick & insightful read. For those familiar with TSOL, there is much in here you will probably have read elsewhere but as an introductory book I?d highly recommend it! Even for those who claim to have strong self awareness (puts her hand up), the transitions of life can still g...
