For a successful life

successSo you want to be successful. You want to get ahead in life. You want to be somebody. But why? In this incisive, funny and brilliant book, philosopher Bas Haring questions the very notion of success and what it means. Are we really in control of our driving ambition, or are we just responding to the demands of our conditioning?

And what is success, anyway? Is success measured by money, by status, by children? Perhaps we should be thinking about success in a different way. Perhaps the real successful people are those who simply enjoy life. Who don’t do anything at all!

“For a successful life” (Beautiful books, 2008) subtly undermines the competitive culture of ambition and drive – and lets you look at your life in a completely new way.
