Is it possible to be truly happy? In an imperfect world, how can we live well with what we have, and accept what we don't have?

In Love, Life, Goethe, John Armstrong looks at the life of the renowned yet often misunderstood writer Goethe to show the surprising ways in which we can learn from him, whether in love, suffering, friendship or family. He shows how relevant Goethe is to the way we live today, and how he wanted (much the same as us) to live life well. From work to our relationships to money and success, John Armstrong explores the main themes of our existence through Goethe, and helps us learn how to live.
