The Breakfast Series

The Breakfast Series is an opportunity to listen to and engage with highly knowledgeable, high-profile speakers. It is an open forum to ask questions, engage in lively debate and to feel challenged by issues of national and global significance. Unlike a one-off event, this 'season' of speakers gives a sense of regularity and continuity.

The School of Life Volume 1
Edited by Alain de Botton
trying to give people what universities should I think always give them: a sense of direction and wisdom for their lives with the help of culture
This is an omnibus of "How To" books (in case "Self-help" might put some of you off!) from the School of Life. The School of Life started in 2008 and runs a diverse range of programs and workshops on different aspects of life with themes such as Love, Work, Play, Self, Family and Community. Philosopher Alain de Botton, the founder of the school, states that "the idea is to challenge traditional universities and reorganize knowledge, directing it towards life, and away from knowledge for its own sake. In a modest way, it's an institution that is trying to give people what universities should I think always give them: a sense of direction and wisdom for their lives with the help of culture". It comprises three books: de Botton's How to Think More About Sex, technology theorist Tom Chatfield's How to Thrive in the Digital Age, and philosopher John Armstrong's How to Worry Less About Money. Each book offers intelligent, accessible insights into these various topics. They are well written and would appeal to those interested in psychology, philosophy, literature, visual arts, sciences - or life in general!
