Summary

The Japanese phenomenon that teaches us the simple yet profound lessons required to liberate our real selves and find lasting happiness. 

The Courage to Be Disliked shows you how to unlock the power within yourself to become your best and truest self, change your future and find lasting happiness. Using the theories of Alfred Adler, one of the three giants of 19th-century psychology alongside Freud and Jung, the authors explain how we are all free to determine our own future - free of the shackles of past experiences, doubts and the expectations of others. 

It's a philosophy that's profoundly liberating, allowing us to develop the courage to change and to ignore the limitations that we and those around us can place on ourselves. The result is an audiobook that is both highly accessible and profound in its importance. Millions have already benefited from its wisdom. Now that The Courage to Be Disliked has been published in English, so can you.

Very thought provoking read

I was inspired by this book and that is, I suppose, its purpose.

I have read many philosophy and psychology books in attempts to learn wisdom. This book, to steal from Tolkien, is possibly 'one to rule them all'. A real unifier of great thinking.

Adler was a great and insightful man, and this is a diamond of a book. The authors, in his footsteps, do humanity a continued service by making his wisdom both accessible and contemporary to all those who follow. (or is that lead....)

Fabulous and life changing.

Having recently started reading up on stoicism this book seemed like a natural addition to my learning. It complements stoicism and the style of the reading with a philosopher of Adlerian philosophy and the young student works extremely well.

I can listen to the book many times over to capture nuggets of wisdom that I missed in the previous reading. Well narrated, very beneficial and enlightening. A joy!

loved the dialogue of the book.

great introduction to adlerian psychology. great way to learn with the dialogue of teacher and student. poses some great questions and answers. is a little vague on some points and last chapter I felt was a bit cheesey on the students part but I guess it had to end somehow. Although I would of preferred a recap of some of the main aspects. overall took some great lessons from the theory / philosophy.
