Meditation teaches us to distance ourselves from our thoughts. The School of Life teaches us to engage with them. Rather than practicing slow breathing or drinking special teas, we can reach a state of calm by thinking. This persuasive and humorous book argues that the most powerful tool we have is the ability to remain calm.

By getting at the roots of our greatest frustrations and anxieties, Calm provides us with the essential tools we need in order to defend ourselves against panic and anger.

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. We don’t have to stay where we are now: our responses to everyday challenges can dramatically alter. We can educate ourselves in the art of keeping calm not through slow breathing or special teas but through thinking. 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.
