Publisher's Summary

Alain de Botton believes that philosophy can help people enjoy happier lives. And in his numerous best sellers, from Status Anxiety to The Art of Travel, his unique blend of erudition and self-help has reached an audience eager to listen. In On Seeing and Noticing, Alain de Botton takes everyday concerns such as expressing sadness or being romantic and dispenses advice and observations based on the works of some of history's greatest writers, artists and thinkers.

Critic Reviews

"A new book by Alain de Botton is always a treat … de Botton is literate, articulate, knowledgeable, funny and idiosyncratic." (Forbes.com)
"The Best introduction to architecture I have ever seen...[de Botton] writes with an engaging freshness...I can't recommend this book too highly. It gets just about everything right." (The Boston Globe)
"A jewel of civility, wit and insight; de Botton has produced wondrous essays. An invitation to hyperbole...a volume to give one an expansive sense of wonder." (The Baltimore Sun)
