Status anxiety is a worry about our standing in the world. We worry whether we’re judged a success or a failure, a winner or a loser; especially now, when the possibilities for achievement seem to be greater than ever.

With the help of philosophers, artists and writers, Alain de Botton examines the origins of status anxiety, before revealing how people have learnt to overcome their worries in their search for happiness.

We're a monthly book club that meets to read aloud together. Reading aloud is a very special social experience that we'd like to revive. Copies of the text will be available - join us for a fun reading session!
