About the Author
Ollivier Pourriol is a philosopher, writer, and novelist. He lives in Paris, where his lectures mixing philosophy and cinema are widely attended, and where he puts his ideas into practice over aperitifs with friends.
"Compelling . . . Pourriol set out to write a readable 'airport book, ' and he has succeeded. . . . In a year of struggle and travel bans, owing to COVID-19, which makes it impossible for Americans to visit France, this title comes at a perfect time." ―Library Journal "[An] amusing and interesting read; even Pourriol's description of his approach to the material is a lesson in the laissez-faire outlook. Is this likely to change readers' lives? Peut être pas, but it is fun to think that it might." ―Booklist "A thought-provoking and delightful book. Pourriol dismisses it as an airport read. Yet somehow, apparently without effort, he has turned it into so much more. . . . [It is like] a pastry: rich and light rather than stuff to be endlessly chewed over." ―Daily Mail "A laissez-faire guide to self-help. This is a book for those who aspire to the déshabillé, Serge-Gainsbourg-and-Jane-Birkin-morning-after look and the studied negligence of the Parisian Bobo (bourgeois-bohemian)." ―The Times (London) "There are many gems to be found." ―OUTinPerth
