This book is full of practical and insightful ways to live a more fulfilling and happy life; wonderful and important lessons learned from Proust's novels told to us from the humble and humorous philosopher Alain De Botton. (On a side note, I highly recommend you listen to De Botton speak from one of his books or video lectures because he has a strangely soothing, soft-spoken, enchanting voice that will come alive as you read any of his books.)

Well structured, softly toned, witty, and humble. Includes details of Proust's life and his novel to help one live a little bit better. No notes, no bibliography or suggested reading lists included.

A witty little gem. So funny, even if you've never been able to get through a Proust novel.
