I first read Alain de Botton about 15 years ago - Lessons in Love - and since then I have been a fan. How Proust can Change your Life, The Art of Travel, The Architecture of Happiness ... I love them all.
I have just finished The Consolations of Philosophy, as well as his latest Religion for Atheists. His gently humorous and self-effacing philosophizing about issues that affect our everyday lives is immensely appealing to me.
(PS On the back flap of Religion for Atheists I see that he has also founded The School of Life. Classes include How to Find a Job you Love, How to Live in a Wired World and How to be Cool.
O boy, how I wish I lived in London ... )
