Does anyone else adore books by Alain de Botton?

Recommended Posts

I just discovered some of his books at the public library a few weeks ago. So far I have read The Art of Travel and The Architecture of Happiness. I am almost finished with How Proust Can Change Your Life.


He is one of those authors who is constantly saying things that I feel I have thought before, but with much more clarity, elegance, and lucidity. And he elaborates on them and gives them substance and depth that I have never before achieved, but instantly recognize and own as truth. He combines philosophy, art, and literature in pleasing ways. His books are quite companionable.
