An Intelligent Life is a practical guide to modern life and relationships. This bestselling title in a revised and updated edition.
Dr Julian Short draws upon 30 years' experience as a psychiatrist to offer hints, tips and guidelines for coping with many of the problems and events that we face every day.
In straightforward language Short explores rejection, family, professional and personal relationships, improving self-esteem and winning an argument, even when you lose. He arms us with the techniques and language to walk away from conflict feeling good about ourself.
To feel good we need to act well. We see ourselves in the mirror of other people's reactions and if we want to like the person we see, we need the skills to give and get as much love as we can. An Intelligent Life is designed to show that we can lose and still like ourselves, liberating us to be hopeless at things, but sensational as people.
