On Seeing and Noticing

I picked this book up at the famous bookshop, Foyles on Charing Cross Road in London. This pocket Penguin has served me well in the months since London– I have carried it with me and made the most of my time in waiting situations. I confess, I was lured by the Table of Contents, which I’ll reproduce here:
On the Pleasures of Sadness
On Going to the Airport
On Authenticity
On Work and Happiness
On Going to the Zoo
On Single Men
On the Charm of Boring Places
On Writing (and Trouts)
On Comedy
56 pages of blissful de Botton writing!
This is part of the 70 Pocket Penguin series, published to celebrate 70 years of Penguin paperback editions.
