APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Some “self-help” books peddle obvious truths as earth-shattering discoveries. The Courage to Be Disliked takes the opposite approach, delivering thoughtful and occasionally revelatory insights in an understated, unapologetically intelligent package. Based on the work of influential Austrian psychologist Alfred Adler, this book unfolds as a Socratic dialogue between a wise man and a skeptical young person. The optimistic premise that guides the conversation has universal appeal: Everyone is capable of change, the past does not determine the future, and all behavior is the result of active choices. We’ll return to this eloquent volume again and again.
Most Impactful Book I Have Ever Read
I looked for a book over years that would help me in my personal struggles of being myself. This book helped me in that and much more. So much wisdom in this one book, I refer to it at least once every few weeks and read passages which I did not derive the full knowledge from. It is slightly difficult to understand the concepts sometimes, but stick with it and reread. The writing format is also genius and leads to a highly engaging read. Highly recommend to everyone.
