The Courage to Be Disliked by Ichiro Kishimi & Fumitake Koga -- Smash hit in Japan, and easy to see why. Adlerian psychology meets Stoic philosophy in Socratic dialogue. Compelling from front to back. Highly recommend.      source

Wow. A profound little philosophy book from Japan, communicating the psychology of Alfred Adler - a rival of Freud. Told as a conversation between an angry student and a patient teacher. A little book so good that I rushed home from other activites to keep reading it, and finished in a day. A surprisingly fresh perspective on how to live. (The “disliked” part is not the point, so don’t let the title distract you.)      source

Two recent ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ books from the last couple of weeks: 'How to Change Your Mind' by Michael Pollan (audiobook with him narrating was great) and 'The Courage to Be Disliked' by Ichiro Kishimi and Fumitake Koga (also listened vs read; recommended).      source

But I think it requires a little bit of context and explanation...      source

@StephenSeanFord Our past doesn’t predetermine our future. Adlerian psychology rather than Freudian. This book helped me & many around me.      source
