Publisher's Summary

We all want to live in a better world, but sometimes it feels like we lack the ability to make a difference. Author, broadcaster, and journalist John-Paul Flintoff offers a powerful reminder that, through the generations, society has been transformed by the actions of individuals who understood that if they didn’t like something, they could change it.

Combining fresh new insights from history and other disciplines, this audiobook will give you a sense of what might just be possible, as well as the inspiration and the courage you need to go about improving and changing the world we live in.

The School of Life is dedicated to exploring life’s big questions: How can we fulfill our potential? Can work be inspiring? Why does community matter? Can relationships last a lifetime? We don’t have all the answers, but we will direct you toward a variety of useful ideas - from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts - that are guaranteed to stimulate, provoke, nourish, and console.
