The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up for the mind, The Courage to Be Disliked is the Japanese phenomenon that shows you how to free yourself from the shackles of past experiences and others' expectations to achieve real happiness. The Courage to Be Disliked, already an enormous bestseller in Asia with more than 3.5 million copies sold, demonstrates how to unlock the power within yourself to be the person you truly want to be. Using the theories of Alfred Adler, one of the three giants of twentieth century psychology, this book follows an illuminating conversation between a philosopher and a young man. The philosopher explains to his pupil how each of us is able to determine our own life, free from the shackles of past experiences, doubts, and the expectations of others. It's a way of thinking that is deeply liberating, allowing us to develop the courage to change, and to ignore the limitations that we and those around us have placed on ourselves. The result is a book that is both highly accessible and profound in its importance. Millions have already read and benefitted from its wisdom. This is a truly special book in the vein of Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up but for the mind. Those ready to embrace the insights and liberation promised by The Courage to Be Disliked will come to a deeper understanding of themselves and others, and find the inspiration to take the reins of their own life.

Professional reviews

"A conversation between a young man and an old man answers the age-old question: How can one be happy? Noah Galvin and Graham Malcolm create an engaging conversation as they narrate the parts of the younger and older man, respectively. Speaking as the young man, Galvin's youthful voice projects confusion, disbelief, indignation, and even anger at the audacious theories put before him by the old man. As delivered by Malcolm, the old man's voice exudes patience, wisdom, and calm. The commentary, based on psychologist Alfred Adler's philosophy, can be complex at times, but the narrators' clear articulation and steady pacing help reinforce the concept that we are in charge of our own happiness. Narrator January LaVoy introduces the principles of this audiobook with a delightful persuasiveness that contributes to its overall sense of wisdom and enlightenment.
