    This is a book about an almost universal anxiety that is rarely mentioned: an anxiety about what others think of us, about whether we're judged a success or a failure, a winner or a loser. This is a book about status anxiety. Best-selling author Alain de Botton asks, with lucidity and charm, where our worries about status come from and what, if anything, we can do to surmount them.

    Jesse says: "A book about one of society's worst diseases"
    "False Advertising!"
    Overall

    Reading the description of this book gives the impression that it is an academic treatise which addresses the role of status and self perception.

    It is, in fact, a thinly veiled endorsement of the ancient Middle Eastern mythology, “Christianity” and in as much contains quite a bit of nonsensical rambling.

    The author has made a truly laughable, if not insulting, attempt to disguise his goofy Jesus rants by interweaving references from history and literature.

    I am pretty sure it says in the Bible “Thou shalt not tricketh people into downloading thine religious audiobook"
