Customer Review

14 April 2017
Brilliant, funny social commentary and a fascinating history of a phrase we all use. I learned so much from this book - from the humble beginnings of carpe diem to its hijacking by marketing companies and its abuses by historic figures and current movements, eg the mindfulness movement. This is a thought provoking attempt to engage with the term fully, explore the way we all use it to justify certain actions and responses (if not "carpe diem", its "just do it" or "#YOLO"),and what it is we're really trying to do with our lives when we use this. If you've ever thought life was too short, this is the book for you.
