How to Find Love by The School of LifeChoosing a partner is one of the most consequential and tricky decisions we will ever make, and the cost of repeated failure is immense. How to Find Love explains why we have the ‘types’ we do, and how our early experiences give us scripts of how and whom we love. It sheds light on harmful repetitive patterns and the extent to which we are not always simply choosing people who can make us happy. We learn the most common techniques we use to sabotage our chances of fulfilment and why, despite their costs, we unwittingly engage in them. The book provides a crucial set of ideas to help us make safer, more
imaginative and more effective choices in love.

Alain de Botton is one of my favorite living writers. Best known for brilliant, genre-rattling books that include How Proust Can Change Your Life, Essays in Love, Status Anxiety, and most recently How To Think More About Sex, the Swiss-British philosopher, television presenter, public intellectual, and entrepreneur has made a career out of smuggling high-minded topics onto bestseller lists as way of getting "ideas to impact on the way we actually live. The scion of a wealthy Jewish family, Alain de Botton was born in Zurich and spent the first twelve years of his life in Switzerland where he was brought up to speak French and German , attended the Dragon School in Oxford where English became his primary language , and went on to Cambridge and King's College, where he earned a Master's degree in Philosophy. In , he became a founding member of the new organization Living Architecture and was elected two years later as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. As the most relentlessly eloquent, entertaining public intellectual in our midst, de Botton occupies a unique if controversial position on both sides of the Atlantic. This interview was an eye- opener.
