Your Second Life Begins When You Realize You Only Have One

The novel that has made over 1 million readers happier

Raphaelle Giordano

'You’re probably suffering from a type of acute routinitis.'
'A what?'
'Acute routinitis. It’s an emotional disorder that is starting to affect more and more people, especially in the West. The symptoms are nearly always the same: lack of motivation, chronic despondency, loss of direction and meaning in life, finding it hard to feel happy despite an abundance of material wealth, a feeling of disillusionment and lethargy, amongst other things.'
'But . . . How do you know all that?'
'I’m a routinologist.'
'A routino-what?'

At thirty-eight and a quarter years old, Camille has everything she needs to be happy, or so it seems. Why then does she feel as if happiness has slipped through her fingers? All she wants is to find the path to joy and fulfilment.

When Claude, a routinologist, offers his unique advice to help get her there, she seizes the opportunity with both hands. Camille’s journey is full of surprising, creative and richly meaningful lessons, as she sets out to transform her life and realize her dreams one step at a time . . .

A charming, feel-good and universal story of one woman’s journey from boredom and dissatisfaction to happiness and fulfilment - if you liked The Happiness Project, The Alchemist or Eat, Pray, Love, you'll love this.
