Brilliantly entertaining, enlightening and inspiring, Robin Skynner and John Cleese take on the big issue: life, and the challenge of living, in all its myriad forms. This book is an essential guide to surviving life's ups and downs - at home or in the workplace, as a member of a family or society.
Presented in the same lively style as the best-selling Families and How to Survive Them, Life extends Skynner's and Cleese's study beyond the family to relationships and group interaction in life outside it. The book deals with such pithy issues as:
-Why life gives you all the lessons you need -How grief can be good for you -Why work is essential to our psychological health -What mid-life crisis means for you
We are all searching for healthier, happier, more satisfying lives, but it's the journey that matters, not the destination. Skynner and Cleese are the perfect travelling companions.
Robin Skynner qualified in medicine at University College Hospital, London. He has been a pioneer in group and family techniques of treatment and one of the founders of both the Institute of Group Analysis and Institute of Family Therapy (London).
