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.
I love it
I couldn’t put this book down. I’ve never heard of etiology or teleology before, but, recently, I’ve noticed that people these days almost seem to “worship” the events in their life that impacted them negatively, and in doing so, never seem to be able to move on from them.
That is to say that all of one’s actions are based upon negative circumstances from the past and if anyone tries to convert you away from your beliefs about the past, or minimize its importance in your life now, you’ll likely react with disgust and anger.
This book shines a light on an alternative way of viewing the world. I believe it is a much healthier, wiser, and easier way of living than what is being promoted today.
Great book! I didn’t realize I was using the teaching in my everyday life after just a couple of chapters
Start to finish - amazing book!
