Alain de Botton's aphoristic first novel, On Love, was a winking dissertation on romantic love, published when he was just 23. It was followed by several books that explored a philosophy of everyday life, including The Architecture of Happiness and How Proust Can Change Your Life, which have achieved bestselling status in 30 countries. He also founded and helps to run The School of Life in London, dedicated to a new vision of education on how to live well. In Religion for Atheists, de Botton offers a practical and provocative argument for religion as a secular resource, boldly encouraging non-believers to borrow from the great wisdoms and beautiful rituals of world religions for everything from building a sense of community to escaping 24-hour media consumption.
