Nearly every choice we make and action we take, from adolescence to death, is driven by a single, all-consuming quest: to live a good life. Problem is, there's no clear, practical road map to get there. No single collection of proven strategies that don't require you to buy into a particular doctrine, dogma, faith, or belief in order for you to get the proverbial keys to the good-life castle. At the same time, a mountain of misinformation distracts and deludes millions into actions and paths destined to fail, then lays blame when the “absolute truths” offered yield nothing more than absolute misery. How to Live a Good Life is your antidote: a practical and provocative modern-day manual for the pursuit of an extraordinary life. No need for blind faith or surrender of intelligence; everything you'll discover is immediately actionable and subject to validation through your own experience. You will discover 12 elements, drawn from the intersection of science, spirituality, and the author's years-long global quest to interview and learn at the feet of masters from nearly every tradition and walk of life. You will: • Explore a side of happiness that will not only lead to more joy but also awaken you to forgiveness. • Learn how to cultivate a fierce sense of meaning and purpose in all you do. • Discover the unlikely marriage between gratitude and desire and the futility of the near delusional optimism that infects so much of today's personal-growth landscape. • Revel in the power of belonging and learn how to cultivate it. • Open to both the responsibility and the gift of freedom, and the transformative power of compassion. • Understand how to stop living a stress-addled, checked-out, punch-list life and revel in the grace and gift of present awareness. • Discover how to reclaim your sleep, movement, and nutrition, and seed a wellspring of health and vitality. Though respectful of tradition, spirituality, and faith, there will be no sacred cows. Long-held myths, often taught as truths, will nonetheless end up busted. Ideas you've held dear will be challenged, then replaced with a new set of guidelines that will, maybe for the first time, unlock a future you've sensed was always there but until now has felt perpetually just beyond reach.

Seriously . . . another book that tells you how to live a good life? Don’t we have enough of those?

You’d think so. Yet, more people than ever are walking through life disconnected, disengaged, dissatisfied, mired in regret, declining health, and a near maniacal state of gut-wrenching autopilot busyness.

Whatever is out there isn’t getting through. We don’t know who to trust. We don’t know what’s real and what’s fantasy. We don’t know how and where to begin and we don’t want to wade through another minute of advice that gives us hope, then saps our time and leaves us empty.

How to Live a Good Life is your antidote; a practical and provocative modern-day manual for the pursuit of a life well lived. No need for blind faith or surrender of intelligence; everything you’ll discover is immediately actionable and subject to validation through your own experience.

Drawn from the intersection of science, spirituality, and the author’s years-long quest to learn at the feet of masters from nearly every tradition and walk of life, this book offers a simple yet powerful model, the “Good Life Buckets ” —spend 30 days filling your buckets and reclaiming your life.

Each day will bring a new, practical yet powerful idea, along with a specific exploration designed to rekindle deep, loving, and compassionate relationships; cultivate vitality, radiance, and graceful ease; and leave you feeling lit up by the way you contribute to the world, like you’re doing the work you were put on the planet to do.

How to Live a Good Life is not just a book to be read; it’s a path to possibility, to be walked, then lived.

One of the great fears many of us face is that despite all our effort and striving, we will discover at the end that we have wasted our life. In A Guide to the Good Life, William B. Irvine plumbs the wisdom of Stoic philosophy, one of the most popular and successful schools of thought in ancient Rome, and shows how its insight and advice are still remarkably applicable to modern lives. In A Guide to the Good Life, Irvine offers a refreshing presentation of Stoicism, showing how this ancient philosophy can still direct us toward a better life. Using the psychological insights and the practical techniques of the Stoics, Irvine offers a roadmap for anyone seeking to avoid the feelings of chronic dissatisfaction that plague so many of us. Irvine looks at various Stoic techniques for attaining tranquility and shows how to put these techniques to work in our own life. As he does so, he describes his own experiences practicing Stoicism and offers valuable first-hand advice for anyone wishing to live better by following in the footsteps of these ancient philosophers. Readers learn how to minimize worry, how to let go of the past and focus our efforts on the things we can control, and how to deal with insults, grief, old age, and the distracting temptations of fame and fortune. We learn from Marcus Aurelius the importance of prizing only things of true value, and from Epictetus we learn how to be more content with what we have. Finally, A Guide to the Good Life shows readers how to become thoughtful observers of their own lives. If we watch ourselves as we go about our daily business and later reflect on what we saw, we can better identify the sources of distress and eventually avoid that pain in our life. By doing this, the Stoics thought, we can hope to attain a truly joyful life.

Drawing on the wisdom of 2,500 years of contemplative non-religious writing on all that it means to be human - from the origins of the universe to small matters of courtesy and kindness in everyday life - A. C. Grayling, Britain's most popular and widely read philosopher, has created a secular bible. Designed to be read as narrative and also to be dipped into for inspiration, encouragement and consolation, The Good Book offers a thoughtful, non-religious alternative to the many people who do not follow one of the world's great religions. Instead, going back to traditions older than Christianity, and far richer and more various, including the non-theistic philosophical and literary schools of the great civilisations of both West and East, from the Greek philosophy of classical antiquity and its contemporaneous Confucian, Mencian and Mohist schools in China, down through classical Rome, the flourishing of Indian and Arab worlds, the European Renaissance and Enlightenment, the worldwide scientific discoveries of the 19th and 20th centuries to the present, Grayling collects, edits, rearranges and organises the collective secular wisdom of the world in one highly readable volume. Contents: Genesis Proverbs Histories Songs Wisdom Acts The Lawgiver Lamentations Concord Consolations Sages The Good Parables
