Description
All of us lead parallel lives: the one we are actively living, and the one we feel we should have had or might yet have. And as hard as we try to exist in the moment, the unlived life is an inescapable presence, a shadow at our heels, and it can make of our lives a perpetual game of falling short, notes psychoanalyst Adam Phillips. Also the author of Going Sane and co-author of On Kindness, Phillips explains how this dynamic can be reversed if we remove the idea of failure from the equation. If we accept frustration as a way of outlining what we really want, suggests Phillips in this "elegantly stated ... wonderfully concise appeal for presentness" (Boston Globe), then satisfaction suddenly becomes possible.

"Extraordinary.... Always humane, never reductive, Phillips is one of those writers whom it is a pleasure simply to hear think."Sunday Telegraph (London)
