    Review text
    What can we learn from a reclusive mummy's-boy who spent the last 12 years of his life closeted like an anchorite in a cork-lined study? Anything that's worth knowing, as these elegant essays point out. Whether or not to let a friend know what's on your mind, for instance, and why it is good for the soul if your loved one refuses to meet you for dinner. Alain de Botton clearly knows his Proust back to front, but he wears his knowledge lightly and writes with wit and verve. More fun than any number of tantric sex manuals and better for you to boot.
