Twelve great thinkers guide you calmly through life's difficult times, and help you to keep it together, even when everything seems to be falling apart.

Discover Epicurus's answer to how to disconnect from digital media, let Aristotle cure your hangover, get into shape with Nietzsche, and find answers to all of life's most pressing dilemmas in this little book of philosophy for the real world.
