Product description

Review

The ideas proffered here will certainly make you think twice about the real cause of the emotional drama in your
life. A thought-provoking read.

Mail on Sunday

Provides an enlightening and balanced argument that'll leave you much more aware of why you do the things you do. ― Emerald Street

The Courage To Be Disliked can easily be consumed in an entire day, but its insightful, humanistic ideas will linger in the minds of readers. It's a self-help book of the most unusual variety, but by empowering people to realise that they hold all the keys to unlocking genuine happiness, it's also one of the most worthwhile things you'll read all year. ― Culture Trip

This thoughtful book . . . is almost spookily relevant in this age of digital one upmanship and increasing anxiety. A real game-changer. ― Marie Claire

an absorbing recent addition to the self-help subgenre . . . it is primarily an accessible exploration of the work of the Austrian psychotherapist Alfred Adler -- Oliver Burkeman ― Guardian --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Ichiro Kishimi was born in Kyoto, where he currently resides. He writes and lectures on Alderian psychology and provides counselling for youths in psychiatric clinics as a certified counsellor and consultant for the Japanese Society of Adlerian Psychology. He is the translator, into Japanese, of selected writings by Alfred Adler--The Science of Living and Problems of Neurosis--and he is the author of Introduction to Adlerian Psychology, in addition to numerous other books.

Fumitake Koga is an award-winning professional writer and author. He has released numerous bestselling works of business-related and general non-fiction. He encountered Adlerian psychology in his late twenties and was deeply affected by its ideas that defied conventional wisdom. Since then, Koga has made numerous visits to Ichiro Kishimi in Kyoto to better understand the essence of Adlerian psychology. From those visits emerged the dialogues-- reminiscent of classic Greek philosophy--that appear in this book. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
