The Little Book Of Unexpected Virtues (eBook)

Sobre o livro
Ever despaired for the state of humanity? Or simply for the state of yourself? This is the book for you.
We all have individual beliefs about what it means to be a good human. Many of these beliefs are also held at the level of society. For example, we might collectively agree that Generosity, Patience, and Persistence are worthwhile ways of being, and celebrate them in ourselves and others.
But what about all those other ways of being that so frequently make us cringe? What do we do when we come face to face with Grief, Apathy, Dissent, Fury or Zealotry in ourselves or others? Where are our confetti cannons and merit awards then?
The Little Book of Unexpected Virtues helps us to perceive the various states of 'human-ness' that we go through - like Despair, Procrastination, and Mediocrity - in a different way to the shaming, blaming and hating approach that we tend to take to the less excellent aspects of ourselves and others. It explores why there is value in the entirety of the human experience, and teaches us how to relate to ourselves and others with curiosity, reality and grace.
