Calm, Book

Why We Love It: don't panic, stay calm - this book draws the attention to the ability to remin calm.

 

About

  • Few life skills are as neglected, yet as important, as the ability to remain calm. Our very worst decisions and interactions are almost invariably the result of a loss of calm - and a descent into anxiety and agitation.
    • Surprisingly, but very fortunately, our power to remain calm can be rehearsed and improved.
    • This is a book that patiently unpacks the causes of our greatest stresses and gives us a succession of highly persuasive, beautiful and sometimes dryly comic arguments with which to defend ourselves against panic and fury.
